Hamburger Engelsaal

Hamburg's Operetta Theater

The Hamburger Engelsaal: The "Theater der leichte Muse" enchants its visitors for an evening with romantic stories and light melodies.

The Engelssaal in Hamburg was already a theatre 200 years ago. In the 1990s, the building fell visibly into disrepair, but in 1997 it was restored to its former state through private investment and used again as a cultural space. But it was not until 2005 that it was revived as a theatre. The "Theater der leichte Muse" has specialised primarily in operettas. This makes it one of the few private operetta houses in Germany with a repertoire programme. The repertoire includes classics such as "My Fair Lady" or "All Paris Dreams of Love" and presents light melodies that have become evergreens. When it comes to operettas, he is Hamburg's top address. Before or after the visit of a performance the famous angel hall cheese hedgehog should be tried absolutely still.
