Performances with English surtitles



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 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 balconies (1. Rang, 2. Rang) or in the stalls (Parkett) from row 13. Seats in the side boxes have a partially obstructed view.

Presented by EXBERLINER.

Following the Administrative Order for the Containment of the Coronavirus in Berlin (in German) issued by the Berlin Senate on 14 March 2020 §2 (3), theatres are prohibited from being opened for public business. That is why all performances of Berliner Ensemble in all venues will be cancelled until and including 19 April 2020. This cancellation pertains to all public events during the aforementioned period, including readings, discourse formats, guided tours and workshops as well as public business at the theatre’s box office.
