Theater Magdeburg

Germany / Magdeburg

Theater Magdeburg is one of the leading repertory theatre in the state Saxony-Anhalt (Germany) with its own resident drama, opera, ballet and orchestra ensembles. The theatre engages approx. 450 staff members full time, including set and costume workshops, technical and transport departments.

Each year, around 30 new productions are realised (many of them co-productions with international partners) – and 1,000 shows are performed (from cabaret to grand opera). In addition, Theater Magdeburg regularly presents productions created or adapted for children and adolescents in order to engage young audiences.

As part of an ongoing outreach program, the theatre has ensembles of non-professional local actors at different ages who explore the performing arts in the context of a professional theatre. The education department offers a diverse programme including teacher training and preparation and pre- and post-performance workshops addressing performance themes for school children of all ages.
