Dusseldorf is widely known as a city with lots of things to do and lots of attractions that appeal to the visiting tourist. For those tourists who are in the area of Dusseldorf’s famous Hofgarten area, taking in the sights, they are encouraged to stop in at the Schauspielhaus Theatre. Here, they can see a show at Dusseldorf’s largest and most exquisite theatre, which runs shows year round in a variety of mediums and styles.
The Theatre itself is something of a contrast to most of the state theatres and other major opera houses throughout Germany, in that the building is not a holdover from the ancient past, but rather a modern establishment with sleek, curving lines, and a trim design. In keeping with Dusseldorf’s push towards a modernized future, the Schauspielhaus Theatre not only sports this modern approach on the outside, but also on the inside with a number of new and experimental performances that are always on-going in the theatre’s two smaller halls that supplement the big major productions.
