The construction work for the neo-classical City Theatre commenced in 1908 according to the plans of Max Littmann. Friedrich Schiller?s words are prominently displayed over the tympanum of the portal: "Der Menschheit Würde ist in Eure Hand gegeben. Bewahret sie. Sie sinkt mit Euch, mit Euch wird sie sich heben.? A rough translation: Man?s dignity has been placed in your hands. Protect it. It will sink with you and with you it will rise up once again. The City Theatre?s programme includes operas, operettas, musicals, theatre, ballet and concerts. 607 seats are available.
My last visit was in March 2005. We saw "Top Dogs" by Urs Widmer, a writer from Switzerland.
