Mainfranken Theater Becomes State Theater

Strengthening and further developing Würzburg as a theater location: This is one of the declared aims of an agreement that Bernd Sibler, Bavarian State Minister for Science and the Arts, and Würzburg's Lord Mayor Christian Schuchardt signed on 3 November, 2019.

Accordingly, the Mainfranken Theater is to be developed to become a state theater with the reopening of its renovated and expanded building for the 2022/23 season.

We all have a 'once upon a time', every person. Personally and connected to humans’ beginning.

Kevin O'Day, Choreographer of "Once upon a time", about the title of his new dance production.
The Mainfranken Theater Würzburg holds a successful tradition of more than 200 years. Attractively situated close to the Würzburg Residence, the theater stages opera, drama, dance, as well as concerts of the Philharmonic Orchestra. It offers a versatile program with around 420 shows per season.
