Dear friends of the theatre,

Also in the coming season you can look forward to touching and inspiring theatre performances. In cooperation with the Theatre of Dortmund, we have arranged a versatile and exciting program for you.

At the beginning of your theatre subscription, you will visit the opera Oper ARABELLA on October 8, 2017, that combines operatic moment with the deep sentiment of a great opera.

You will meet the exceptional composer Peter Tchaikovsky twice – on the one hand in his opera EUGEN ONEGIN on 21. Januar 2018, one of the most beautiful operas in the Russian repertoire, and on the other hand in Xin Peng Wang's imposing ballet premiere RACHMANINOV | TSCHAIKOWSKY on December 3, 2017.

Look forward to the colorful and charming Broadway Musical HAIRSPRAY on November 5, 2017 as well as the Berlin Revue operetta FRAU LUNA on February 11, 2018, which will not only appeal to operetta lovers.

With Verdi's NABUCCO am on March 25, 2018 you will once again see a great choral opera. With this production, Jens-Daniel Herzog says goodbye as the director of the Dortmund Opera.

We wish you pleasant and unforgettable theatre visits.

Impressions of performances

Your booking is possible until August 25, 2017 via our office. For more general information about our offer, please visit our page CultureWetter.

Press release for the handover: new contact for the theatre subscription

[Supplement of July 14, 2017] – Figure: Markus Drüke, first chairman, Rainer Zimmermann, managing director, and Tina Huth, employee at the city office, thank Heiner Rechmann for his long-term commitment and at the same time welcome John Fiolka as his successor.

Heiner Rechmann can look back on 13 years of voluntary work at the Stadtmarketing für Wetter e.V. Now, he stops. However, he does not turn his back on the association: he has recently been a member and will remain a consumer, he promises.

In the beginning, Rechmann took over city tours and was quickly admitted to the board. For two electoral periods, he has guided the well-being of the association before taking over the organization of the theater subscription. That this is his real hobbyhorse, you notice immediately when he begins to tell. He goes into rhapsodies about it. Rechmann knows many interesting stories to talk about. One thing becomes clear in every memory: the subscription is far more than a series of theatre visits. Many subscribers know each other and meanwhile a good community has developed in which, of course, new faces are welcome.

The organization of the theatre subscription now goes to John Fiolka. Through his many years of experience in the choir domain, he shares the passion for music and culture and is therefore a blessing for the city market.

The subscription for the upcoming season has been arranged together by Rechmann and Fiolka in cooperation with the Theatre Dortmund. The program is quite impressive: everything from musical to ballet to opera and operettas. The Opernhaus in Dortmund will be approached six times in the months from October to March. The performances take place on Sundays at 6 pm. Subscribers will benefit from a special service: arriving and departing together in a bus, which stops at marked points in Alt-Wetter, Grundschöttel, Volmarstein, Wengern and even in the Mühlenstraße in Herdecke, before reaching the theatre entrance. Short distances are thus guaranteed. Especially in the dark and cold season a great advantage, which especially older citizens appreciate.

On October 8th the audience will be abducted to Vienna. In Richard Strauss' comic opera "Arabella" the most coveted girl of the Austrian metropolis is to be married. On 5 November, the Broadway musical "Hairspray" follows. In Marc Shaiman's work, everything revolves around dancing to meet the pretenders. Xin Peng Wang's performance ballet paired with music by Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky awaits the audience on December 3rd. In the new year, 21 January, Tchaikovsky continues with his opera "Eugene Onegin", one of the most beautiful operas in the Russian repertoire. "Frau Luna" will kidnap the audience to the moon on February 11th. The revue operetta promises a colorful and imaginative theater evening. On March 25, 2018 Verdi's famous opera "Nabucco" will mark the completion with the most famous prisoner choir of the operatic history. Den Abschluss bildet am 25. März 2018 Verdis bekannte Oper "Nabucco" mit dem berühmtesten Gefangenenchor der Operngeschichte.

Registration is possible until August 25th. The subscription costs 316 € and is available at the City Marketing in the building of the Sparkasse (Kaiserstraße 78, tel. 02335 840188).
