Theater Bremen is a municipal theatre of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. The ensemble performs changing plays, musicals, dance theatre, operas and operettas at various venues: Theater am Goetheplatz, Neues Schauspielhaus, Brauhauskeller and Moks (children and youth theatre).

For the first time there were also spectacular open-air performances of Richard Wagner’s opera “The Flying Dutchman” this summer. The opera was performed at the newly set-up floating stage at Bremen’s Waterfront and at the Spiekeroog harbour. The Gallery and Artist House Spiekeroog was the cooperation partner of Theater Bremen for these open-air performances. The story of the Dutchman, who harshly curses God and the world and is therefore condemned to sail the seven seas for eternity on a ghost ship, proved to be just made for a performance on water. Rarely had such a spectacular production been performed with a genuine historic Hanseatic cog and a floating stage measuring 40 by 20 metres. The harbour setting on Spiekeroog also turned out to be an outstanding and very well frequented venue. This island premiere was realised through cooperation between the Gallery and Artist House Spiekeroog and Nordseebad Spiekeroog GmbH. Bremen and possibly Spiekeroog are being considered for the performance of Verdi’s opera “Aida” in the coming year.
