Dieter Hallervorden returns
Since 2006, Dieter “Didi” Hallervorden, a native of Dessau, has been an honorary citizen of our city. In addition to his main residence in Berlin, the famous actor, cabaret artist, singer, presenter and theatre director travels all over the world and is by no means thinking about retirement. For his current project, he is now returning to his home country to create a new cultural attraction here.
From 04.09.2022, he will transform the Marienkirche in the centre of the city into the new venue “Mitteldeutsches Theater” (Central German Theatre) and invites you to a varied programme with numerous prominent guests.
For the premiere, Dieter Hallervorden himself plays in his play “God’s Life Course”. The first season will be enriched by other performances such as “Rain Man”, “Heavenly Times” or “A Strange Couple”. In addition, the programme promises a colourful mix of readings, cabaret and concerts with well-known guest appearances from Sebastian Fitzek to Frank Schöbel.
The setting of the new old Marienkirche in the heart of the city will provide the perfect backdrop.
