The Wiesbaden State Theatre of Hesse is a five-genre house with four stages, 3,182 seats and more than 300,000 visitors per season, making it one of the most successful theatres in the German-language region. It presents more than 70 productions per season, in addition to guest performances, special events and panel discussions with prominent guests. During the 2015/16 season, Artistic and Executive Director Uwe Eric Laufenberg makes use of the entire bandwidth a modern multi-genre house has to offer: there is an outstanding opera programme with a world premiere, a Wiesbaden premiere, intriguing new productions and revivals of Wiesbaden classics, performed by an outstanding ensemble and high-carat international guests. The drama department presents 21 premieres – including eight world premieres and two German premieres. The Hessian State Ballet, a successful cooperation of the State Theatres in Darmstadt and Wiesbaden, enters its second season, and General Music Director Zsolt Hamar continues his work with the Hessian State Orchestra.
