Event tour "Haunted in the House of the Golden Scales"

With the reconstruction of the House of the Golden Scales in the context of the "new" old town, Frankfurt has regained one of the most beautiful half-timbered buildings from the Renaissance. During the tour, you will learn what happens when a modern descendant of Abraham van Hamel stays in the house and wants to do research on his family history. Maybe he will learn more than he would like. Because whoever wakes up the ghosts in the 'old hell' (that was the name of the property in the Middle Ages) will not get rid of them so quickly!
Directed by: James Lyons, with Gudrun Schnitzer and Volker Heymann

"Souvenir"

Play by Stephen Temperley
She was and is a phenomenon: Florence Foster Jenkins, heiress to a wealthy industrialist, and dazzling personality of New York's social and artist life of the 1940s. Souvenir tells her story through the eyes of her companion and pianist Cosme McMoon. For the talented musician, it is nothing more than a pragmatic way to finance his rent. As the two get to know each other better, he becomes increasingly involved in the world and bizarre view of the Foster Jenkins. In his play, Steven Temperley shows a woman inspired by art, who does not allow herself to be distracted from her infinite love for music through self-doubt, external hostility or even objective quality. Florence Foster Jenkins is and remains a persuasive, an unshakable, self-confident and fabulously talentless soprano, whose impact and career today's supposed superstars can only dream of.
With Barbara Ullmann and Jan Walther.
Director: Ulf Dietrich

Opening Night:   August 31, 2019
Time:    August 31, 2019 – March 18, 2020

"A Dnace on the Volcano – Trier and the Twenties"

A revue by Manfred Langner and Horst Maria Merz
How golden were they, the wild twenties? An exhilarating time full of joie de vivre in which to enjoy peace, dance Charleston and make it a daytime evening? Or a decade that stumbled into the Great Depression and in times of need and impoverishment the political situation became increasingly aggressive? A glittering party and a blind stumbling into the abyss of dictatorship at the same time? The musical revue shows a rapid journey into Trier in the 1920s, through the history of the Weimar Republic with its quirks and fashions, between marching and jazz. Besides, this review also casts a glance ahead, in the upcoming "Twenties" - how close are we to the dance on the volcano again?
With Stephanie Theiß, Michael Hiller, Barbara Ullmann, Klaus-Michael Nix, Anna Pircher, Gideon Rapp, Giovanni Rupp, Bianca Spiegel and Paul Hess.
Director: Manfred Langner

Opening Night:   December 7, 2019
Time:    December 7, 2019 – March 29, 2020
