In the borough Bogenhausen the Prinzregententheater is situated at Prinzregentenplatz. The impressive building was constructed in 1901 and is similar to the festival hall of the Richard-Wagner-Opera in Bayreuth. In deed the planning of this theater was to have a Richard-Wagner-Opera house in Munich, too. Therefore at the opening of Prinzregententheater the “Meistersinger von Nürnberg” (Mastersingers) was performed.
Today Prinzregententheater is the home of the Bavarian Theater Akademie “August Everding”. Furthermore concerts and readings take place here, too.
