The Schauspielhaus Graz is a fixed point at the annual award of the Austrian "Nestroy" theatre prize and has been nominated and received awards again and again in recent years: for the best performance in the provinces or for its actors and young talent. It is one of the largest theatres in Austria and has for some time been divided into the venues Haus EINS, Haus ZWEI and Haus DREI. (Performances in German).
Opera for all! This is what the Graz Opera offers with its Oper Aktiv! programme for kindergartens, school classes, families, young adults and for everyone else as well. Whether opera, operetta, musical or ballet and choral singing, the opera stage in Graz at the Kaiser-Josef-Platz has room for everyone. In addition, it is repeatedly nominated for international opera awards and many Austrian conductors and artists started their careers here in the gold-white-red Baroque-Rococo building.
The Lendviertel in Graz is hip and creative and a highly sought-after place for design shops and creative people. The Theater am Lend, which is just as innovative and open-minded as its neighbourhood, is right in the middle of it. It is a place for contemporary and modern forms of theatre and often introduces completely new stage formats: performances, multicultural projects and a changeable theatre space - the Theater am Lend is alive and kicking.
There are many reasons why people went and go to the Orpheum: in the past it was a variety theatre, later a cinema, then a house for the youth and now it is a place of culture for all social classes of all ages: Austria's most famous political cabaret artists perform here, as well as the latest music from new bands, Punch and Judy or jazz. The Orpheum is also perfect for night-clubbing.
