"Nationaltheater Mannheim’s membership to FEDORA is very valuable. The FEDORA Platform helps to realise new, exciting and extraordinary productions and encourages us to include international opera coproductions in our season planning. We also benefit through capacity building in the field of fundraising, which is becoming more and more important."
Artistic Opera Director
Nationaltheater Mannheim (NTM) is a multi-genre theatre with a program of opera, drama, dance and theatre for young audience. It is considered one of Germany’s most prestigious stages. Founded in the early 19th century the works of artists like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Friedrich Schiller have laid the foundation of a continuing inspiration for more than 200 years. Today NTM is especially known for its extensive repertoire of opera-productions and one of the largest opera stages in Germany. Since 2016 Albrecht Puhlmann has been the artistic director of the opera. It is his keen interest to develop world premieres and international coproductions as well as new forms of musical theatre. Emerging artists are supported in establishing their careers: The International Opera Studio provides special coachings and practical experiences for young singers. In 2017 the world premiere of Chaya Czernowin’s piece "Infinite Now" has been awarded “World premiere of the year” by “Opernwelt”.
