4. to 5. April 2020
Barely a week goes by without some festival or exciting event taking place in Weimar. Classical concerts, plays on stage and in the open air and many exhibitions at Weimar's museums. Even more convivial are our markets and fairs
Whether classics or modern theatre: The repertoire of Weimar's Deutsches Nationaltheater is enormous. This year FAUST I and II, Hamlet or Fidelio are on stage.
The state archive of Thuringia presents the original documents of the Bauhaus.
For several years, the Weimar photographer Thomas Müller portrayed former prisoners of the Buchenwald concentration camp. For the opening of the Bauhaus anniversary year, large-format photo portraits in public areas are meant to be both a confrontation and an invitation to pause and reflect.
The special exhibition at the Stadtmuseum Weimar will show women’s fashion between the Goethe- and the Bauhaus-eras.
The background is the castle park in Tiefurt, the open-air stage, the theatre pieces as light as the summer breeze. Every year the focus of the performances is an original production. The Lyric Opera Studio Weimar also gives guest performances here.
At the Bauhaus, experiments with speech were just as elementary and compositional as those with colors, forms and building materials. The ACC-Gallery calls for: Speech Renewal! And brings contemporary literates, lyricists and other writers and artists to Weimar.
