The historic Schauspielhaus Graz is one of the biggest theatres in Austria since its reconstruction in 1825 after a big fire destroyed almost the entire building. Putting a special emphasis on international cooperation and inviting stage directors and actors from all over the world, the theatre gained itself a reputation of an artistic home “at the centre of Europe”. The theatre has toured outside of Austria and made guest performances in Budapest or Moscow. Being a price-winning theatre, the Schauspielhaus Graz has won the Nestroy Theatre Price six times. An interesting and diverse playbill is combined with numerous music and dance performances.
