The project

The Theater Festival in Hamburg is a project of the private and non-profit foundation Hamburger Theater Festival. The aim of this project is not only to promote the theater itself, but to accompany Hamburg on its further way to becoming a festival city and cultural metropolis. Every year, the program features controversial, hotly debated and inspiring theater productions from German-speaking countries. Let the great actors and actresses in Hamburg's great playhouses sweep you away with great acting.
