After almost seven months without regular performances, the Berliner Ensemble will start its second open-air season in the Hof-Theater on May 27th. Now that the Berlin Senate has made open-air events possible again under certain conditions, the Berliner Ensemble will invite 100 spectators to the courtyard of the Berliner Ensemble from May 27 to June 20, 2021, on a total of 16 evenings from Thursday to Sunday, where ensemble members and guests will present short, improvised or musical programs.

Oliver Reese: "A first step towards opening up is finally possible again: We are prepared and will open our courtyard theater again this year. In intimate evenings, the audience can finally meet our ensemble live again in this special setting in our courtyard. We have been waiting for this for a long time. In addition, we continue to hope that there will be prospects for indoor events before the end of June - the playbill is ready!“
