Saarland State Theater (Main Theater: Großes Haus)
(Evening Box Office) Tel.: +49 (0) 6 81 / 3 09 22 86
The Neo-Classical State Theatre was opened in 1938 with a performance of “The Flying Dutchman”. At the time it was the most modern theatre in Europe, but had to be reconstructed after considerable damage during WWII. In 1988/89 the 869-seat auditorium was completely renovated and enlarged.
The State Theatre stages operas, operettas, musicals, plays and ballets. In the foyer chamber concerts, introductions to the events and audience discussions take place.
Saarland State Theater (Alte Feuerwache)
(Evening Box Office)
With 300 seats, the Alte Feuerwache is the State Theatre’s second largest venue and used to be the fire brigade’s gymnasium. It was converted into a theatre in January 1982.
Primarily plays are put on here, but ballets and concerts are sometimes staged too. Special events include readings in the gallery, introductory events and guest performances.
The Saarland State Theatre’s “fourth programme” is a place as well as a series of events, an open platform for creativity away from the mainstream. A type of laboratory in which theatre’s underlying assumptions are questioned and deconstructed.
