About the Theater

Theater Basel is Switzerland’s largest theatre working in three distinct art forms. It offers the tri-national metropolitan region a broad and ambitious programme in the fields of opera (Opera Director: Laura Berman), Theatre (Theatre Directors: Andreas Beck / Almut Wagner) and Ballet (Ballet Director: Richard Wherlock), as well as provision for children and young people (Junges Haus).

Theater Basel has been directed by Andreas Beck since the 2015/2016 season.  


Extensive renovation works Theater Basel

After forty years of continued operations, the theatre building on the Steinenberg requires an extensive overhaul. Therefore in the years to come the demanding renovation work will be carried out at Theater Basel in the summer periods when there are no performances or rehearsals. The overall costs across different departments come to a total of CHF 72 million. New seating in the auditorium has been financed by donations.
