The Basler Compagnie plays in the theatre at Theater Basel. The name 'Basler Compagnie' stands for our bond with Basel and a collaborative theatre practice. In the 22/23 season we are showing seven classics and seven world premieres: Shakespeare, Chekhov, Moliere and Aeschylus, but also Ariane Koch, Lucien Haug, Nona Fernández and Michelle Steinbeck. The stage is filled with great emotions, philosophical thoughts, powerful images and lots of music. What happened, how did it happen and what does it all have to do with me: Welcome to play and speculation on all stages.

Die Abos für die Spielzeit 23/24 sind im Ticketshop und bei der Billettkasse im Verkauf. Noch unentschlossen? Einen kleinen Wahl-o-mat zur Entscheidungserleichterung und den Überblick über das Angebot finden Sie hier:

Premieres 22/23

Resumptions 22/23

1 hour, 1 artist, 1 classic
«Limitations reveal the master.» Goethe

Hamlet, Käthchen, Othello, Medea. Theater Basel is taking its educational mission seriously. Every month we will be performing a different work of the classical canon. On a specially designed small stage in the foyer. The run time is one hour. Budget-friendly admission. The theatre, ballet and opera departments are also involved in this cross-disciplinary project. Revolving around the most fundamental of all theatre questions: What has it got to do with me?


Debates, discourses, readings, performances, intimate concerts. Theater Basel invites everyone to come along and discuss current issues or experience the talents of in-house or visiting artists on the corner stage of the theatre café.


The Abo Français is an Abo Romand! We have given the Théâtre de Vidy in Lausanne carte blanche. At the crossroads of different European theatre cultures, the Lausanne production house produces, co-produces and stages theatre and dance performances by Swiss and international artists. The Vidy team has selected four French-language plays to be presented as guest performances throughout the season. All with German surtitles!
