Acting like a collective memory, the Historical Archive documents the artistic past of Saxon State Theatres and their wide-ranging activities. A vivid picture is painted of Dresden’s musical and theatrical life through the centuries by means of programme booklets, playbills, historical photos and many other treasures.
The archive, which is open to the public, is the only such institution in Germany to record a city’s theatrical heritage. By arrangement, users can research the archive themselves at no charge. A processing fee must only be paid for enquiries dealt with by the archive staff as well as for related services. Come and immerse yourself in the history of Saxon State Theatres!
Visiting address Ostra-Allee 9, 01067 Dresden (Entrance via Malergäßchen) Please register in advance.
