Hello alle, dear Basel

Our first joint theatre season is soon to begin! We’re delighted and grateful that we can play and perform for you again. Some things have changed while others have stayed the same. A new feature, for example, is the ‹Foyer Public›: the theatre foyer will be open to everyone in the city and from the neighbourhood – six days a week from 11 am.

Starting this season, every department will have its own ‹in-house artist›. Richard Wherlock is celebrating his 20th anniversary as head choreographer. While opera and theatre are brought to you by Benedikt von Peter and Antú Romero Nunes respectively. The theatre director Antú is also one of the four members of the new direction of theatre, alongside the actor Jörg Pohl and the dramaturges Anja Dirks and Inga Schonlau. The four of them are bringing a top-class ensemble to Basel.
