WHAT PATRONATSVEREIN IS ABOUT

We support productions whose artistic realization cannot be financed through the regular budget, support young artists in their training and promote special events and introductions to productions. We aim to arouse interest in the art of opera, theatre and dance across all age groups.

With your membership fee, your donation and your dedication to the arts, you support special, outstanding productions or parts of productions. Another important task of Patronatsverein is to inspire people for the performing arts, who do not yet have a connection to opera, theatre and dance.

OPERA | THEATRE | DANCE

It is often the special, outstanding and extraordinary in a production that is made possible with the support of Patronatsverein.

This can be special costumes, lighting, original instruments, commissions, filming or many other things. Here is a small selection of the work that has been supported by Patronatsverein:
