Advance ticket sales always begins on the 3rd calendar day of the previous month. Should the beginning of advance ticket sales fall on a Sunday or public holiday, the advance sales will begin on the following working day (Monday to Saturday). 

The Berliner Ensemble offers a special service for our international audience and visitors to Berlin from all over the world: Several times a month, we will present selected performances on the main stage at Großes Haus with surtitles in English. You can find the dates here and in our monthly programme; the performances with surtitles are specifically marked.

Our box office staff will be happy to tell you from which seats you will have a good sight-line to the surtitles. For the best view of both stage and surtitles, we recommend seats in the stalls (Parkett) from row 11, or in the balconies (1. Rang, 2. Rang). Seats in the side boxes have a partially obstructed view.

During the summer holidays between July 15th and August 19th the theatre and the box office are closed.
