¡Adelante! In Heidelberg

Theater und Orchester Heidelberg/Germany

Season 2020/2021

In 2020, for the second time, Theater und Orchester Heidelberg presented the Ibero-American theatre festival ¡Adelante!. A total of 11 countries were represented at the festival, including Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Uruguay and Spain. One of the biggest highlights was the multinational co-production of La Flauta Mágica/Die Zauberflöte, with artists from Heidelberg, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay and Italy. These guest performances as well as other collaborations brought Theater und Orchester Heidelberg to Latin America. The theatre is currently developing these relationships and  before the pandemic, additional guest performances were scheduled in Mexico and Italy.

Theater und Orchester Heidelberg has five main production areas: musical theatre, musical performances, theatre, the Dance Theatre Heidelberg (DTH), and an ensemble for children’s and youth theatre (Junges Theater Heidelberg). The theatre gained national recognition after it was mentioned in various journals, and earned a total of seven nominations for the prestigious DER FAUST theatre prize during the last seven years of Holger Schultze’s artistic direction.
