The construction of the Musical Dome Cologne lasted only about six months, as it was originally intended to be a temporary building. It was opened in October 1996 and has since become a permanent highlight of the Cologne cultural scene. The first show at the Musical Dome was the musical “Gaudi”, which was not financially successful. New owners turned the Dome into a financial success with the 70s musical “Saturday Night Fever” starting in 1999. Between 2004 and 2008, there were about 1,400 performances of “We Will Rock You”, the biggest success in the Musical Dome.
From 2012, the Musical Dome was temporarily taken over by the Cologne Opera, which performed pieces under the title “Oper am Dom” in the Musical Dome. This was due to the renovation of the opera house at Offenbachplatz. In the fall of 2015, the opera left the Musical Dome Cologne and musicals are once again being shown. In the future, the Staatenhaus am Rheinpark will also serve as a musical theater in Cologne.
