Staatsschauspiel Dresden

Staatsschauspiel Dresden
Dresden, Germany

Founded in 1913


The second venue, the “Kleine Haus”, was opened in 2005. This theatre, which seats 350, is located in the popular Neustadt area. In summer 2009, two new stages will also be added to the “Kleine Haus” venue: a studio stage seating 80 and a workshop stage with space for an audience of 150. The main focus of the “Kleine Haus” theatre is on contemporary drama and workshops with lay actors from all parts of society.

The “After the Fall” festival is the first international cooperation involving the Staatsschauspiel Dresden's new management and forms a main plank in their opening programme. Further international co-productions and guest performances are already in planning.
