Deutsches Schauspielhaus

Enjoy culture in a classical atmosphere - at the Deutsches Schauspielhaus the old masters are breathed back into life in new productions.

Deutsches SchauSpielHaus Hamburg

The Deutsches SchauSpielHaus in Hamburg is not only one of the most beautiful theater buildings in the German-speaking world, with its 1,200 seats it is also one of the largest spoken-word theaters. Located directly behind the main train station in the heart of St. Georg, the Deutsches SchauSpielHaus looks back on an eventful history of over 120 years. Well-known directors have shaped the theater and made it famous far beyond Hamburg's borders. Since the 2013-14 season, director Karin Beier has been the artistic director of the Deutsches SchauSpielHaus.

A total of 14 premieres in the Großes Haus, the MalerSaal and other venues, including four German-language premieres and one world premiere, are on the program for the upcoming season. It is no coincidence that two Shakespeare productions stand at the beginning of the new season. In them we find two almost prototypical tyrants.

Karin Henkel will open the Großes Haus with "Macbeth" in the 2022-23 season, and the season already starts in the MalerSaal at the beginning of September, also with a play by Shakespeare: Stefan Pucher is working on a version of "Julius Caesar" with "Caesar", in co-production with the Lausitz Festival and in cooperation with the Théâtre National de Luxembourg.


Young SchauSpielHaus at Wiesendamm

In 2005, under the direction of the then artistic director Friedrich Schirmer, the Junges (young) SchauSpielHaus was established as a permanent division of the Deutsches SchauSpielHaus. Since then, it has been directed by Klaus Schumacher and has its own ensemble, which has developed a highly acclaimed repertoire. The Junges SchauSpielHaus has already received several awards in its short history, including the German Theatre Prize "Der Faust" three times, the Boy Gobert Prize twice, the Rolf Mares Prize and the "Bible and Culture" Foundation Prize. The theatre is recognised nationally through its directing and writing projects at festivals such as "Augenblick mal!" and guest performances. From the 2021-22 season, the Junges SchauSpielHaus has moved into the Wiesendamm venue with its award-winning programme for children and young people.

In Bergedorf a police station was moved in 1992. What remained was an old building, whose further use was up for discussion. Dedicated people with a healthy sense of community turned it into a cultural centre that has enriched the life of the district to this day.
