Staging rehearsals take place onstage in our historic mainstage theatre – Jugend- und Kulturzentrum mon ami, which is in the very centre of Weimar, and a five-minute walk from the Studio.
Centrally located in Weimar’s beautiful Altstadt, the Studio is minutes on foot from shops, parks, and the main train station.
The poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe was the overwhelming force, which during Weimar’s ‘Classic Age’ in the late 18th and 19th centuries, earned the city the title ‘Athens of the North’. Goethe was also the founder of the German National Theater in Weimar, and his influence attracted the composers Liszt, Wagner, Berlioz, Hummel and Strauss. Also home to Johann Sebastian Bach, and birthplace of the Bauhaus architectural movement, Weimar represents the true heart of German cultural history.
In 1999, after Germany’s reunification, Weimar was named a European Cultural Capital; and with more than 20 buildings in Weimar designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the city has been restored to the pristine glory of its ‘Classic Age’.
