Theatre and Music

Erzgebirge Philharmonic of Aue and the Eduard-von-Winterstein Theatre in Annaberg-Buchholz

Since 1990, thanks to the extraordinary artistic accomplishments of the Erzgebirge "Philharmonic" orchestra, the now renamed Auer Orchestra has been collaborating closely with the Eduard von Winterstein Theatre in Annaberg. With the founding of the Erzgebirge Theatre and Orchestra (Erzgebirgische Theater und Orchester GmbH) in June 1997, the two musical groups have been combined into one orchestra, which has been staging its musical theatre performances at the Eduard von Winterstein Theatre. In addition to operas, operettas and musicals, plays and studio stage productions are on Annaberg’s City Theatre’s programme.

The Mittelsächsisches Theater

The Mittelsächsisches Theater, the Central Saxon Theatre, in Freiberg is the oldest municipal theatre in the world. The curtain has regularly been going up here for more than 210 years. The theatre with 315 seats is gleaming again, just as it did in 1880 – there is good reason that the house is also referred to as the “Small Super Opera”. The ensemble of the Mittelsächsisches Theater performs classics and comedies, operas, operettas and musicals, theatre for children and youth, plays and concerts as part of its repertoire.

Erzgebirge District’s Theatre Pedagogic Centre

More than 80 children engage in creative and meaningful free time activities at the Theaterpädagogisches Zentrum (Theatre Pedagogic Centre) in Stollberg. The “Burattino” ensemble stages a large number of performances every year throughout the Saxon region. In addition, the young actors also travel around the world for guest performances, for example, to Italy, Russia, France and Finland. In the young actors group, children from eight to twelve years of age are introduced to the craft of performing theatre plays in a fun way. Their education includes speech training, improvisational training, role plays, cinematics and stage fighting. Former members of the “Thea(l)ternative” group continue to enjoy the opportunity to act in the theatre after they become adults.
