Schauspiel Hannover

The Schauspiel Hannover (Hanover Drama) is part of the theatre organisation of the German state of Lower Saxony in its capital, Hanover, the Nieders├Ąchsische Staatstheater Hannover (Lower Saxony State Theatres). The other part is the Staatsoper Hannover. Schauspiel offers theatre, entertainment and music on five stages, the Schauspielhaus (Play house), the Cumberlandsche B├╝hne (Cumberland stage), the Cumberlandsche Galerie (Cumberland gallery), and the historic buildings in Old Town, Ballhof Eins and Ballhof Zwei.

The main venue, the Schauspielhaus, was built in 1992 at a central location close to the Main Station. It was designed by the Swiss architect Claude Paillard and seats 630 people. Its large stage (Gro├če B├╝hne) is traditionally the location of the opening of a new season. Two smaller stages are located in adjacent historic buildings, the Cumberlandsche Galerie, a listed monument with a large staircase, used for events for up to 85 spectators, and the Cumberlandsche B├╝hne, a former rehearsal stage, for up to 198 seats. The complex also houses a Theatermuseum (Theatre museum) that presents temporary exhibitions and documentation of the history of the theatre.
