Lessingtage: Understanding cultures and religions
The Lessingtage theatre festival (named for the 18th century German author Gotthold Ephraim Lessing) took place for the first time at the Thalia Theater during artistic director Joachim Lux’s opening season in January 2010. The festival, which was later celebrated as ‘Hamburg's new fixed star’, features national and international guest performances that speak to a question posed by Lessing himself: How could understanding between cultures and religions on both a large and small scale be possible?
Due to the international focus of the festival, many of the pieces featured are in languages other than German or include surtitles for international audience members. Check the festival programme to find out which performances are best suited to your language needs.
