Stadttheater Münster

Stadttheater Münster was the first post-war theatre in Germany. Its modern architecture visibly contrasts with the “typical” Münster architecture..
The auditorium and elliptical stage tower grow from the base containing the lobby and the side rooms. Perrons and slim round supports lend the base elegance. The arena-shaped, thus classic auditorium has almost 1,000 seats, with even the farthest stall no more than 14m from the stage. The auditorium is lighted by 1,200 “living room lamps”, the combination of which makes for full light.
The lobby is reached by a ring of stairs around the auditorium, transparent on the outside. Between the lobby and the quad is a ceiling-high glass wall. The quad contains parts of the ruins of former Lortzing-Theaters. In 1971, an exposed concrete annexe for the chamber theatre was built.
