Dear audience,

we will continue to play for you - despite the reduced space availability.

According to the cabinet decision of December 15, 2021, the Bavarian State Government's Infection Protection Measures Ordinance for cultural events will continue to apply with a greatly reduced space allocation and minimum distance rules until January 12, 2022.


2G+ with mask and rapid antigen test

 

2G+ (vaccinated or recovered plus FFP2 mask and rapid antigen test) applies.
If your booster vaccination was at least 15 days ago, you no longer need a negative test for admission to our theater.

 

You can have a rapid test done free of charge, for example, at the Theater Test Center at Marstallplatz with prior registration: www.theater-tests.de.


Please show your vaccination or recovery certificate together with your ID card (or other photo document) and the negative rapid test at the time of admission.


You must present a valid photo ID to attend the performance.

Graf Öderland (Count Öderland)

A street ballad in twelve tableaux by Max Frisch
Residenztheater, 20.00–21.30 o'clock | WITH ENGLISH SURTITLES
Abo 23
Prices H

A caretaker is murdered with no reason or motive. Alienated from himself and life in general by a working day that is always the same, a bank clerk seizes an axe and commits murder. This action lacking any obvious cause shocks state prosecutor Martin, who is in charge of the case. In the murder and his crime he can see a reflection of his own imprisonment in a bourgeois existence dominated by duty, law and order. The prosecutor is immediately struck by an existential fear that drives him to escape into the fairy tale world of a mysterious alter ego: the world of Count Öderland.

Cancelled due to illness in the ensemble. Instead: DER KREIS UM DIE SONNE (THE CIRCLE AROUND THE SUN). Already purchased tickets and subscription exchange cards with the imprint NEU (NEW) remain valid.

Der Kreis um die Sonne (The circle around the sun)

by Roland Schimmelpfennig
world premiere/commissioned work
Residenztheater, 20.00–21.20 o'clock
Abo 23
Prices G

In sharp, precise poetic miniatures and snapshots, Roland Schimmelpfennig, one of Germany’s best-known contemporary playwrights, describes casual encounters, incidental gestures and fragments of conversation across a panorama of characters that go together to establish a kaleidoscopic image of a society suddenly brought to a standstill by a pandemic. Through skilful leaps in time, abrupt disjunctions and cleverly constructed transitions we follow the broadest possible range of characters enter a disparate and dissonant period after this shock – of social isolation, helplessness, fear and desperation.

Agnes Bernauer

By Franz Xaver Kroetz
Cuvilliéstheater, 19.30–21.10 o'clock
Prices F

«Agnes Bernauer», first performed in the GDR in 1977, starts like a stop-motion fairy tale: after the death of her mother, Agnes is sent out to work by her bankrupt father. But she is unable to believe that she will find a profession that «gives her pleasure», and decides to marry money. Her rise in society happens quickly: Agnes becomes pregnant and takes Albrecht as a husband: a squeamish only child and mother’s boy who is pampered in the golden cage of the Werdenfels’ family business.

Urteile (revisited) – Nach dem Prozess (Judgements (revisited) - after the trial)

A documentary theatre project about the victims of the NSU in Munich by Christine Umpfenbach and Azar Mortazavi
Marstall, 20.00–21.20 o'clock
Prices T

From 21 October to 7 November 2021 theatre projects will be presented throughout Germany under the label «Kein Schlussstrich!» (“Do not draw the line!”) concerning the National Socialist Underground (NSU) - because even ten years after it unmasked itself, the underlying reasons behind the NSU continue to remain unclear. The play «Judgements», which premiered on 10 April 2014 in the Marstall and which was the first play in a German-speaking country to tell the story from the perspective of the loved ones the murder victims left behind, will therefore be restaged by Christine Umpfenbach with a new cast in the form of a re-enactment and be continued up to the present day.

Gott (God)

by Ferdinand von Schirach
Residenztheater, 20.00–21.45 o'clock | Discussion with the audience after performance
Abo 41
Prices G

Elisabeth Gärtner, a retired architect, has only one more wish: she wants to die. Her beloved husband died of cancer three years ago and without him life has no meaning for her any more. A drug that would allow her to die of her own volition has been refused her. Now the Ethics Council must make a decision on her case. Expert witnesses from the fields of law, medicine and theology argue over the question:  Does a human being have a right to determine their own death? Are doctors allowed to help someone commit suicide? And who do our lives actually belong to? To us? To the state? Or to God?

Die drei Musketiere (The three musketeers)

after Alexandre Dumas in an adaptation by Antonio Latella and Federico Bellini
Residenztheater, 19.30–21.30 o'clock
Abo 52
Prices E

The Three Musketeers, of whom there are actually four, appear and think about their loneliness. Can their famous slogan «One for all and all for one» be explained mathematically? Who is «the one» here? And who are «all»? They transform themselves into their own servants and horses and reconstruct Dumas’s story – and above all they question it. The musketeers are fighting for their lives and the actors are acting as if their lives depend on it.

Die Unerhörten (The outrageous ones)

Technoid love letters for ancient heroines after Sappho, Ovid, Euripides et al.
Marstall, 20.00–22.00 o'clock
Prices U

The director Elsa-Sophie Jach, who recently made her debut at the Residenztheater with her production of Herbert Achternbusch’s «Heart of Glass», brings the outrageous love poetry of «Europe’s first poet» to new life. Known for a directing style characterised by precise language and strong visuals, she hunts down the forgotten remains of Sappho’s poems, condenses them into a chorus and, on a tour through the literary canon together with the Munich techno live band SLATEC, she exposes the systematic erasure of the female voice, its silencing and the need for it to empower itself.

Lulu

by Frank Wedekind in an adaptation by Bastian Kraft
Residenztheater, 19.30–21.15 o'clock
Abo 64
Prices F

The Munich dramatist Frank Wedekind spent over twenty years working on what he called his monster tragedy which, due to harsh censorship, would never be performed in his home city during his lifetime. It was too indecent, too lewd. In Lulu, Wedekind created a snake, a creature «to tempt, to seduce» – and to murder. For her lovers, Lulu is like a screen onto which they can project their desires – whatever a man wants, he will find it in her. And it goes further: Lulu’s seductions drive an entire succession of her lovers in Munich and Paris to their deaths until she ultimately throws herself into death’s arms in the back streets of London.

Herz aus Glas (Heart of glass)

based on the screenplay by Herbert Achternbusch
World Premiere
Marstall, 20.00–21.30 o'clock
Prices V

Rising sea levels, forests dying and even the two world wars were supposedly predicted by the woodland prophet Mühlhiasl, who apparently lived near Straubing during the 16th century and went down in legends of the Bavarian forest as a local Nostradamus. The dramatist, filmmaker and poet Herbert Achternbusch makes use of this legend to write about a society that is determined to preserve prosperity by any means necessary: the entire village lives off the local manufacturers’ fame for making ruby glass – however the master glassmaker who just passed away took the recipe to the grave with him. The cowherd Hias, who is hastily summoned for help, confirms the clairvoyant faculties attributed to him by arriving before he has even been called for. Spurred on by his gloomy forecasts on one hand and the tyrannical glassworks owner Goldfinger on the other, the entire village ends up in turmoil and is soon prepared to sacrifice the peace of its soul for wealth.

Die Wolken, die Vögel, der Reichtum (The clouds, the birds, wealth)

by Thom Luz based on motifs by Aristophanes
World Premiere/Commissioned Work
Cuvilliéstheater, 19.00–20.30 o'clock
Prices F

Disappearing, fading away, vanishing and escaping – Aristophanes’s comedies deal with everything in the world that is ephemeral: life, happiness, property, knowledge and trust. They tell us about the complicated business of being human, about the problem of the just distribution of wealth, about greed, twisted rhetoric, and the eternal incompatibility between theory and practice.
