Theater Koblenz | Koblenz

The Koblenz Theatre, not far from the Electoral

Palace, is the only surviving classicist theatre building on the Middle Rhine

and the earliest surviving example of a rank theatre in Germany (in contrast to

the former Logent theatre). The theatre was built in 1787 as a private theatre

on behalf of Trier's Archbishop and Elector Clemens Wenzeslaus and his sister

Maria Kunigunde of Saxony in only seven months in early classicist style. In

1867 the building passed into the ownership of the town, which had it renovated

in 1869, whereby the interior was rebuilt in the style of historicism. After

further renovations in 1937 and 1952, which further modernised the appearance

of the building and restored it after the damage caused by the war, the theatre

was comprehensively reconstructed from 1984 to 1985 with the aim of coming as

close as possible to the original state of 1787.






After an interim capacity of 800 seats (of which

a large number is standing room), the Theater Koblenz now has room for almost

460 spectators.



Today the Koblenz Theatre is a three-part theatre

with its own ensemble for drama, music theatre and ballet. The repertoire

includes opera, musical, drama, ballet, children's and youth theatre from all

eras and genres.
