Musiktheater im Revier
Designed in the fifties by architect Werner Ruhnau in close collaboration with an extraordinary collective of artists, the Musiktheater im Revier is considered one of the most important, precisely planned theatre buildings in Germany. To this day its large glass facade welcomes visitors with open arms.
In addition to a diverse opera repertoire, musicals, operettas and nationally renowned ballet company, the MiR notably engages in innovative projects with and for children and young people. The house’s broad artistic spectrum is complemented by concerts featuring symphonic jazz and film music or chanson and song recitals.
