Fürth: Stadttheater

Country: Germany (Deutschland)
State: Bayern
City: Fürth
Location: Königstraße 116 / Hallplatz

Built 1901-1902 by Ferdinand Fellner & Hermann Helmer for the city of Fürth, using plans they had originally designed for the Teatr im. Olgi Kobylyanskoy, Chernivtsi (Ukraine) in 1900. The Chernivtsi project had been put on hold at the time. When it was finally constructed in 1904-1905, the original designs were used with slight alterations. Hence, the theatres at Chernivtsi and Fürth are very similar in appearance.

Opened 17 Sep 1902 with Beethoven's "Fidelio". Originally used in co-operation with the Nürnberg theatre company. 1933-1944 used by a resident theatre company, notably for operetta performances. After World War II, used as a military cinema by American troups. From 1952, again used as a theatre in co-operation with the Nürnberg theatre company. 1971-1972 alterations of stagehouse and stage technology by Thomas Münter, interior renovation by Hermann Wiedl. Subsequently used as a venue for touring companies and (from 1990) for co-productions. Originally 1000 seats, today 707 seats.
