It’s time for theatre

During my stay at the Radisson Blu I followed a recommendation to go and see the Landesbühnen Sachsen  musical “Sunday in the Park with George” …

It is only a 15-minute walk from the hotel. I walk through the sculpture park and catch sight of the brightly lit and festively decorated glass house. I enter the bright visitor foyer and go to the first floor, where I browse through the program with a glass of wine and look at the current photo exhibition “1989 Turn of Times. Eastern Europe between Peaceful Revolution and Violence ”of the Saxon State Center for Political Education. The friendly staff at the theater tell me that photo and art exhibitions take place regularly in the visitor foyer and can be viewed free of charge one hour before the start of the performances.

The bell sounds. I make my way to the “Great Hall” with the main stage and I end up in a very modern, box-shaped hall. Not a classic theater hall that you may imagine. The performance begins. The curtain rises and I dive into a magical world! The production revolves around the painter George Seurat, who painted with dots. These can be found on the costumes corresponding to Biedermeier, while the stage set “only” consists of a projection of the painting “A Sunday afternoon on the island of La Grande Jatte”. The stage in the Radebeul theater is not big, but uses the possibilities of modern theater very creatively. The orchestra and the singers are easy to understand from my seat.

An exciting evening in the cozy parent company Radebeul. Many of the guests know each other, live in Radebeul and the surrounding area and come regularly to the theater. I highly recommend that see Stephen Sondheim’s musical. You will not regret it. It was recently nominated 7 times by the Broadwayworld Germany Award and the state theaters as “Theater of the Year”.  By the way, the ticket for Sunday in the Park is also a discount voucher at the Dresden State Opera. “Follies”, also a musical by Stephen Sondheim, can be seen with a 20% discount.

I leave the theater and use the tram, which is directly in front of it, to make my way home. After two stops I get off at “Schildenstrasse”, just at the end of the road from the Radisson Blu. With the Landesbühnen ticket, I can use the train free of charge (4 hours before and up to 6 hours after the start of the performance). A great service!

Would you like to spontaneously attend a performance of the state stages? No problem, the box office is always open one hour before the start of the performance.
Finally, a small gift tip for you: give away theater tickets. Whether tickets or vouchers, the Landesbühnen offer various options for inviting friends and family to great entertainment..
