12th Hamburg Theatre Festival

The diversity of theater on Hamburg's stages

At the 12th Hamburger Theater Festival all theatre lovers get their money's worth. Within the framework of the festival, numerous guest performances will be performed on Hamburg stages.

From spoken theatre to musical comedy to theatrical film project – the Hamburger Theaterfestivalist is the annual highlight for theatre and literature fans in the metropolis. This year the festival is taking place for the eleventh time. For the first time in spring, from April to June, renowned German-language productions will be performed in five of Hamburg's most famous theatres. These include the theatre Deutsches Schauspielhaus, the Thalia Theatre, Kampnagel, the St. Pauli Theatre as well as the Hamburg State Opera.

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.
