Theatre

Innsbruck and its surroundings is a centre for theatre and dance performances.

Theatre, dance and music have got something in common: the stage. The performances of the Tiroler Landestheater (in the picture), the most famous theatre in Tyrol, are known far and wide. Its history dates back to 1629, when the architect Christoph Gumpp, after studying Italian theatres in Innsbruck, turned one of the ballrooms into a real theatre, where, among others, Marcantonio Cesti's "Cleopatra" was performed in 1654, or "Romulo and Ersilia" in 1765. In 1805 it was renamed the "Königlich-bayrisches Hof-Nationaltheater" (Royal Bavarian Court National Theatre), and in the course of time it was renovated and renamed several times. In 1967 it was festively reopened in its present form with Raimund's "Der Alpenkönig und der Menschenfeind".

Moreover, there are several other famous cultural events such as the Innsbruck Dance Summer, the theatre festival taking place in Erl, performances for for kids, dances, peasant theatres, dramas and comedies - there is something for every taste.
