Marvel at the skill of Darmstadt’s best musicians, dancers and singers while they perform on one of three stages in this landmark building.
The Darmstadt State Theatre is the hub of the performing arts in Darmstadt, hosting everything from operas to concerts to ballets and more. The schedule is changing constantly and performances are held almost daily. Come here to see a completely different show every time you visit Darmstadt.
The theater is divided into multiple sections, including the large house, the small house and the Kammerspiele. As suggested by its name, the large house holds the highest number of audience members with a capacity for 956 seats. Admire the sleek, modern look of the three stages, each of which is slightly different in its design.
Choose to come for a performance by a local opera group and be blown away by the massive vocal ranges and detailed costumes. Spend an upscale evening enjoying the sounds of Mozart and Mendelssohn at a classical concert.
Come for an uplifting performance at a musical such as Footloose. Watch as graceful ballerinas twirl and jump across the stage as you enjoy the beauty of dance. Arrive a little early and socialize with friends and family at the on-site bar before the show starts.
A few times a month, the theater offers guided tours for those interested in exploring how Darmstadt State Theatre operates behind the scenes. Learn all about the roles played by more than 500 employees. Your knowledgeable guide will also give you an in-depth insight into the artistic performances hosted here.
Ticket prices for the Darmstadt State Theatre are based on a tiered system. Pay a bit more for a better view. Discounted tickets are available for children under the age of 13. Book in advance to avoid disappointment.
While there is a parking garage underneath the theater with almost 300 spaces, parking here isn’t guaranteed and visitors are encouraged to come by alternative transportation if able. Take advantage of the multiple public transportation stops just a short walk away from the theater or the convenient taxi drop-off points.
