Friends and Supporters of the German National Theatre and the Staatskapelle Weimar - Staatstheater Thüringen - E.V.
Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear friends of the Deutsches Nationaltheater and the Staatskapelle Weimar,
For the first time, the 2018/19 season of Hasko Weber's artistic direction will be under the overarching motto "New Man". Under this heading, the National Theatre Weimar will deal with various concepts and questions about the human being of the future in a series of significant programme positions. The central productions in the Great House are "A Clockwork Orange", with which the play opens the season, and the world premiere of the opera "The Circle", which the composer Ludger Vollmer composes as a commissioned work for the DNT. Alfred Döblin's revolutionary epic "November 1918", which is staged as an interdisciplinary production of music theatre, drama and Weimar Staatskapelle.
2019 is also a year of remembrance. With 100 years of the Weimar Constitution and 100 years of the Bauhaus, the DNT is focusing on two events that have shaped Weimar, Germany and Europe. In a "Week of Democracy", the 14-year attempt to establish the first democratic system of government in Germany will be examined for its significance for our present and the question of the significance of democracy today, based on the historical events.
As part of the celebrations of the Bauhaus anniversary, the DNT Weimar, together with the Stuttgart Ballet, will present a ballet evening with premieres inspired in various ways by the year 1919.
In addition, there will again be great acting classics such as "Wilhelm Tell" and "Macbeth" as well as premieres of contemporary works. In music theatre, GMD Kirill Karabits will continue the series of Da Ponte operas with Mozart's "Don Giovanni" for the season opening and with "Così fan tutte". The fairytale opera "Hansel und Gretel" by Engelbert Humperdinck, premiered at the Weimar Court Theatre in 1893, also returns to the repertoire.
The Staatskapelle Weimar will also focus on music from the time of the social and musical upheaval of the first decades of the 20th century with a view to the two anniversaries of the year 2019 and will present symphony concerts with top-class musicians as usual.
Enjoy the varied programme of the Deutsches Nationaltheater and the Staatskapelle in the new season.
As friends of the DNT, we would like to arouse your interest and curiosity for the many new theatre projects and for concert life. We ask you to support our work; you are cordially invited to become a member.
We are looking forward to your visit with the whole DNT.

Through the acquisition of sub-foundations, a foundation capital is to be created with which the Deutsches Nationaltheater and the Staatskapelle Weimar can be supported above all in their artistic work, in the improvement of the venues and the intensification of public relations. The foundation capital is inviolable and the interest income benefits the theatre.
