"Nothing is as constant as change", Heraclitus already stated 2500 years ago. The world around us is changing rapidly. Many of the new things we initiated at the theatre are now coming to fruition. Theater Basel is once again well attended. Last season we welcomed more young people - and a lot of new audiences in general. Internally, we are working more on sustainability and fair cooperation. And this season, too, we have a lot of new plans!
In the opera, Wagner's 'Ring' awaits us again for the first time in 40 years with a diverse programme as a festival lasting several weeks. The works and composers in the rest of the season are also varied: Monteverdi, Rossini, Mozart, Bizet, Verdi - and Herbert Grönemeyer, who is writing his first musical theatre comedy for Basel.
Exciting and quite a bit of transformation awaits you in the newly formed ballet: a new team around Adolphe Binder as curating director begins its work in August 2023. Undogmatic, contemporary, performative, humorous, participative, masterful, exciting - the styles are as diverse as the artists:inside who come to Basel.
In the face of global crises and conflicts, the play brings classic figures of resistance to the stage. The Alte Billettkasse remains a place for low-threshold encounters and artistic experiments. The Basler Compagnie continues to stand for forward-looking work structures and excellent acting.

We look forward to seeing you and yours!
