The Mecklenburg State Theatre in Schwerin is one of the most renowned and historic theatres in northern Germany, serving a wide range of performing arts, musical theatre, plays in dialect, ballet and drama.

Schwerin’s beautiful theatre was inaugurated almost 130 years ago. Behind its Neo-Renaissance facade, architect Georg Daniel designed a Neo-Baroque auditorium with three tiers seating 542 spectators, as well as classical foyers. The theatre is situated next to the Museum of Fine Arts and opposite to the magnificent palace that exemplifies the flourishing of court culture in the 19th century. In fact, the Residence Ensemble Schwerin is currently applying to be listed as an official UNESCO World Heritage site.
