With celebrated productions by Stage Entertainment such as Disney's THE LION KINGS and TINA - The Tina Turner Musical, Hamburg plays in the top league of musical cities worldwide. This year, one of the most successful Disney musicals of all time will follow with Disney's FROZEN - The Musical at the Stage Theater an der Elbe. St. Pauli musicals such as Heiße Ecke (Hot Corner) complement the diverse offerings of the musical metropolis of Hamburg and make every trip to Hamburg an experience.
Hamburg's musical scene shines all over the world. With no less than four large Stage Theatres, Hamburg is the German capital of musicals and regularly presents German and European premieres. CATS, KINKY BOOTS and the Udo Lindenberg musical HINTERM HORIZONT are just a few examples. But it also works the other way around: in 2014, ROCKY, a production created in Germany, was exported to Broadway for the first time and subsequently won the Tony Award for Best Stage Design.
The undisputed No. 1 is and remains Disney's global success THE KING OF THE LIONS. Simba, Nala and Rafiki have been at home at the Stage Theater im Hafen for more than 20 years and have already transported more than 11 million spectators to the savannah of Africa. But even away from the big theatres, many show sensations play an important role in Hamburg's entertainment scene: the neighbourhood highlight Heiße Ecke has been providing merry laughter and humid evenings at Schmidts TIVOLI since 2003.
In 2021, two musicals will celebrate their premiere: in September, WICKED - Das Musical will return to Hamburg with a new production at the Stage Theater Neue Flora. Shortly afterwards - from November - an icy wind will blow through Hamburg. Then the long-awaited Disney musical THE ICE KINGDOM will make the hearts of all fans of Anna, Elsa and Olaf beat faster.
Two highlights have already been confirmed for 2022! Firstly, MAMMA MIA! - The Musical brings the groove of ABBA to the Hanseatic city and experiences a revival after almost two decades. A little later in the autumn, the hit musical HAMILTON will come directly from New York's Broadway to the Reeperbahn at the Stage Operettenhaus.
