What’s on on Berlin’s stages?

Numerous stages and concert halls have reopened and are showing programs adapted to the current conditions while observing the rules of hygiene.


Curtain up for Berlin

Where to go in Berlin? Around 150 theatres and play stages raise the curtain every night in Berlin.

No fewer than three opera houses make Berlin a hot-spot for classical music.

Add eight major orchestras with famous conductors waving their batons. The theatres’ programmes include both well-known classics and audacious avant-garde.

The Deutsches Theater, the Schaubühne and the Berliner Ensemble continue to write theatre history to this day.

Dancing, revue shows and spectacular stage sets: the musicals put on by the Theater des Westens and the opulent shows hosted by the Friedrichstadt-Palast are nothing short of enchanting.

Share a laugh at the expense of daily insanity at the city’s cabaret shows. Or check out the stunning acrobatics, comedy and small performances in the German capital’s many vaudeville shows and cosier stages.

Berlin classic-style

Berlin’s very own Friedrichstadt-Palast, home to the best in Las Vegas-style entertainment, has been wowing audiences since 1984 – and long gained classic status!
