Finally it is time. After a few delays, the new Volksbühne in Großer Hirschgraben will open its doors to the public on Friday, 24 January. For the premiere, the Volksbühne and the Ensemble Modern will play the world premiere of a Frankfurt classic: "Struwwelpeter" will be performed to a sold-out audience. Tickets have not been available for many weeks. But you can still be there for this special premiere: In cooperation with the Volksbühne and the Ensemble Modern, the City of Frankfurt's Department of Culture will broadcast the opening premiere via livestream on their social media service Frankfurt&Culture. Ina Hartwig, head of the cultural department, is pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to interested citizens and adds: "I hope you have a lot of fun - whether in the Cantate Saal or at home on the sofa!"
Michael Quast is also happy that the inauguration of the new house will be made accessible to those who have not been able to get hold of tickets. For the cooperation with the renowned Frankfurt orchestra is "a bang for the buck for a new theatre that wants to address everyone", says Quast, the director of the Volksbühne.The livestream will be shown on both http://www.kultur-frankfurt.de/livestream as well as on the Facebook-Fanpages of Frankfurt&Culture on http://www.facebook.com/ffmculture as well as the Volksbühne from 19.20 hrs.
