Programme of the 12th Hamburg Theatre Festival 2021
This year's festival programme ranges from heavenly laughter to unstoppable descents. The outstandingly staged comedies of the current season shine with quick wit and rousing humour. After performances that are exulting to the skies, the tide turns to dialogues that are saddened to death. The tragedies presented confront the audience with human abysses and serious moments. The theatre festival promises unique theatre evenings.
