Historical flair in a modern setting Theatre events at the Schauspielhaus (playhouse) in Linz

Schauspielhaus Linz is the playhouse on the promenade and is home to the productions of the Linz State Theatre. Plays such as ‘Life of Galileo’ by Bertold Brecht and William Shakespeare’s ‘The Storm’ are on the diverse programme at Schauspielhaus Linz.

The playhouse’s reopening in 2017 put the spotlight on the theatre’s original 1950s flair while improving its amenities and acoustics for the audience. The theatre now has a new motto – ‘Better seating, better acoustics, a better view’ – and can accommodate 500 guests.

Plays have been staged at the State Theatre on the promenade since 1803. Together with the Kammerspiele venue and the musical theatre in Volksgarten park, Linz State Theatre not only offers plays but also musicals, dance and operas.
