A theatre with international standing

With over 220 years of constant performances, the Anhalt Theatre is one of the most traditional theatres in Saxony-Anhalt – and with 1050 seats, it’s also the largest. The high standard of all kinds of performances fully justifies the international reputation of the theatre.

Operas, operettas, musicals, symphony orchestra concerts, ballet and plays – the Anhalt Theatre serves a broad range of interests, and its productions attract audiences from all over Germany.

To Wörlitz in the summertime

During the summer, the orchestra also presents the popular lakeside concerts in the Wörlitz Park, where the Stein rock island is a great attraction. The summer performances of the Anhalt Theatre take place regularly in its amphitheatre.

The Old Theatre (Altes Theater) is the smaller venue of the Anhalt Theatre and the home of the puppet theatre. Three different stages offer a wide variety of performances, from the modern production of classical pieces to improvisations with unpredictable outcomes.
