Landestheater-innenFormer Court Theatre (550 seats),
dedicated on September 17, 1840, year-round program with its own company - operas, operettas, musicals, plays, concerts, ballet, late night and breakfast shows, children's and youth theatre;

Do you love Mozart, Wagner and Schiller - or perhaps new avant-garde?  Are you more interested in modern classical à la Brecht and Dürrenmatt? Are you just as enchanted by a graceful ballet as well as by an opera, operetta, and musicals? Then step right up - and welcome to the Coburg State Theatre! Duke Ernst I of Saxony-Coburg and Gotha founded the cultural center of the fortress city in the year 1827 as the ducal court theatre with its own ensemble.  Initially, the performances took place in the former ball house, which had already been converted into the Schlossplatz arcades in 1764. In the year 1840, the theatre moved into the new building, which is still the splendid "Requisite" of the State Theatre to this day. The State Theatre stages 280 of its own performances per season. In addition, around 140 performances take place at the Studio Stage in the riding arena. With approximately 25 productions per year, the State Theatre covers the categories of plays, musical theatre and ballet. From serious opera to an elating musical - from a delicate ballet to rousing comedy or a moving tragedy, each year, Coburg gives 120,000 viewers a wide spectrum that delights the passionate connoisseur as well as the casual visitor.
