Essen's opera house offers excellent opera and ballet (while plays are done at Grillo Theatre and concerts in the Philharmonie). Check what's on during the dates of your stay. Tickets can be obtained online through the website of Aalto theatre, too.
I saw a ballet performance of "Carmen". The first part used Bizet's Carmen suite and told the story in dance. For the second part they invented a sequel to the opera plot: Carmen reawakens from death, and the figures from the opera also make an appearance in Beyond. For this second part they used a piece by Wolfgang Rihm and Ravel's Bolero. It was fantastic...
Watching a performance is worthwhile, both for the quality of the show and for the architecture of the interior. Aalto designed his theatre after the model of Finnish landscapes. Organic forms are the base of the design. The colours of the hall are white and a dark blue. Walk the foyers and check the views from the different galleries during intermission.
Dress Code: Youn won't be kicked out in jeans and sweater but to me, dressing up is part of an opera visit and adds to the festivity of the occasion. Jacket, shirt and tie for men, better a suit. For women, dress pants or skirt and nice top, or a dress. That should be the minimum. Of course you could dress more formal than that.

So, this place is also like a club, local bands are playing here live and the music is, well, I told you already, it is the better side of the music with only rock.
Dress Code: Black is common here but in general everything goes well.

Here are always freshly opened appointments, e.G. wine seminars, culinary art as special events and quite entertaining evenings with Friends and Co. On Wednesdays and on Saturdays - when it is market day in Essen-Rüttenscheid - they also serve a very yummy breakfast.
What else belongs to it in such a way, can be provided in the internet badly. Thus if you are ready here: shut down your computer and then come by in the real life...
Dress Code: no dress code

This place was just on our way so we stopped here for a beer, not special at all and was actually a bit boring. Not recommended. But if you like more of the Latin music, maybe this place come a live later at night but I did not had the patient to stay there.

Great scene! Over the heads of the public a steam locomotive pulls her circles, in the back silly deer heads stare from the wall and you can be surprised of the "jampacked Bar" almost every night. The service is very nice. In the shrillly red ambience the world looks nicer. The tasty Grolsch does its rest - the "Pfumppf" of the bottle is a "familiar sound". In addition - here you get original "Oranje-Junkfood ". TOP!

This is a really cool bar. They play really loud Rock, Independent and Heavy Music, but this isn't really a Rockbar. The people who go to this bar are students, neighbours of this bar, just normal people and also the 'Essener Highway Lions', a bikergang.
The drinks are very cheap. You pay 3.50DM for a Batida Cherry or Vodka Lemon. You can also eat something and it is delicious and it isn't too expensive.
Dress Code: There is no special dresscode, but if you líke you can wear leather and big boots and a lot of tatoos and colored hair, but this isn't a must. ;)

This s a irish modern bar. You can drink irish beer and eat also irish, but you can also drink german and other inetenational beer. They play loud House Music and Trance and many electro music. The customers are mostly students and young people. But in the summer you can sit outside and the customers are in all ages.
Dress Code: No special dresscode at the day. In the Evening you can wear anything that looks good for Party, Clubbing and Disco, because the Temple Bar is a stopover for partypeople.
