Eine Szene aus Der Freischütz

Your heart beats for the theatre. But most of all, it beats for one genre; opera, drama or ballet. That's why, in addition to the very popular ballet subscription, Theater Basel now also offers an opera-only and a drama-only subscription. Enjoy your favourite opera at your favourite seat on alternating weekdays. And if you do want to visit a different section: additional tickets are available at a 10% discount.
