Now in English: Performances with English surtitles!

Performances with surtitles and guided tours in English at regular intervals

Starting immediately, Berliner Ensemble will provide a new service for international guests and visitors to Berlin from all over the world: Several times a month, we will present selected performances like "Der kaukasische Kreidekreis" ("The Caucasian chalk circle") and "Caligula" on the main stage at Großes Haus with surtitles in English. You can either find the dates here or in our monthly programme; the performances with surtitles will be 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.
