We perform for you in the summer!

At the beginning of June, the Berlin Senate decided on far-reaching relaxations for cultural institutions, allowing, among other things, indoor theater events. Therefore, we decided not to take a theater vacation, but – unlike usual – to play through the summer months for you. All tickets for events in July and August are already on sale

Hygiene and protection measures

We’re embarking on this new season paying due care and attention to your health and to that of our ensemble and employees. In addition to the usual, and by now familiar, hygiene and social distancing rules, we've developed a series of specific protective measures for our venue to ensure that you have a pleasant visit to the theatre and that we can keep the risk of infection low. Information on our hygiene and protection measures can be found here.

The Schaubühne Berlin is one of the founding theaters of the European theater network PROSPERO. The ten partners involved in the multi-annual project of cultural cooperation want to undertake an artistic and cultural act, and to promote an ambitious theatre project which is also a political gesture, thus contributing to the construction of an artistic and cultural Europe.
