The Cologne Opera and we at Schauspiel Köln invite you to kick off the new theater year with us on 20 August! The program has something in store for everyone, big or small. The Cologne Opera is open from 11 am to 4 pm. At Schauspiel Köln, the action starts at 2 pm, when we celebrate the premiere of our family show »Tini uand the magical Phantafabulieromat«. Actor Justus Maier reveals new theater secrets with a large serving of humor in his »Justus Maier-Show«. We’re parting with our greatest treasures from the in-house tailor shop and auctioning off handmade costumes to you. We’ll also take you behind the scenes of the theater. You can swing along the climbing wall at the neighboring Stuntwerk, move your body with Ballet of Difference dancers, or listen to smaller performances or readings. Creative workshops for children, balloons, a bouncy castle, and creature comforts will of course be provided until a concert by our acting ensemble brings the day to a close at 7 pm. The entire programme of Opera and Schauspiel will be online shortly and the access is free of charge! Mid-day, we will offer you a shuttle sevice between the Staatenhaus and the Depot.
