Award-winning world successes and cheeky neighbourhood classics make Hamburg a musical city

New musicals in Hamburg in 2023

From autumn 2024, & JULIA - The Musical will be coming to the city on the Elbe. You can also look forward to the German premiere of MJ - The Michael Jackson Musical in December 2024, with background stories from the 1992 "Dangerous" world tour. At the Stage Operettenhaus, TANZ DER VAMPIRE - The Musical will thrill you with its eerily beautiful performance, impressive costumes and rocking songs. Since spring 2024, Disney's HERCULES has been celebrating its world premiere for the first time in Hamburg at the Stage Theatre Neue Flora.

Discover the musical metropolis of Hamburg

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 and worls premieres, such as Disney's HERKULES, HARRY POTTER AND THE CURIOUS CHILD and ROCKY, which was the first production created in Germany to be exported to Broadway 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.
