Schauspiel Leipzig

Schauspiel Leipzig is the city’s biggest spoken theater with five venues. Here you can watch classic drama performances as well as pieces of the young authors. The building and the interior of the theater charm guests with their own unique vibes while friendly service attracts visitors.

Since 2013 director Enrico Lübbe and his team have implemented their concept of a progressive city theater with its diversity and modern interpretations of the classic pieces. That’s why Neues Schauspiel Leipzig is worth going to - it connects different genres of art and goes beyond regular theater.
