Intern for event management
and internal communications

On 26 January 2018, the world-famous Semper Opera House will open its doors for the thirteenth time for the most wonderful night of the year: the Semper Opera Ball. Germany's most popular ball enthrals audiences again and again with its spectacular programmes.

International opera stars, the State Choir of Saxony in Dresden, the Semper Opera Ballet and the State Opera Choir present top-class classical entertainment. Young debutante couples enchant audiences with impressive choreography, and prominent figures in politics, economics, sports and culture receive the Dresden Medal of St. George for their outstanding achievements and commitment. Over two-thousand guests in the Opera House and around ten-thousand on the theatre square enjoy the captivating party.

And in 2018 the Semper Opera Ball fully intends to wow its audience once more.
