Performances like “Measuring the World”, “Mephisto” or “The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared” are only some of the popular performances of the well-known theatre. But it also stands out as a lodestar of its quarter due to the wide range of genres it presents, including comedies, current and modern pieces, musicals and famous classics. This has allowed it to attract theatre-goers of all ages for many years. Visitors can expect unforgettable experiences here and highly varied programmes.
