This traditional five-category theatre offers music, plays, dance, young theatre and its own orchestra. Its foundation (1690) dates back to Duke Anton Ulrich von Braunschweig-Lüneburg (1633–1714). Some of the highlights in its history include the debut of “Emilia Galotti” by G. E. Lessing 1772 and “Faust: The First Part of the Tragedy” by J. W. von Goethe in 1829. The large house (“Großes Haus”) was built in Florentine Renaissance style between 1859 and 1861.
