Nearest stations: Hauptbahnhof, Schlossplatz
Your host: Heather T.
Prepayment deadline: Thursday, November 10th
The curtains of the Stuttgart Staatstheater rise on more than 300 performances of opera, theater, and ballet each year.
But what happens during the day and what does it take to get each production stage ready? We will find out in November at our behind-the-scenes tour at the Staatstheater Stuttgart!
The Staatstheater refers to both the grand old Opera House (opera and ballet) and its modern neighbor, the Schauspielhaus (theater and ballet). These two houses are joined in the middle by an administration building.
We will meet at 13:45 on the front steps of the Opera House and our 90-minute tour will start at 14:00. We are scheduled to visit both auditoriums, the foyers, and the backstage areas.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE LOCATION
Unfortunately the buildings are not wheelchair- or stroller-friendly and there will be stairs.
Photography and filming during the tour are not allowed.
