Karen Stone, General Manager
"We at Theater Magdeburg are pleased to be part of the FEDORA Platform because we believe that it is important to support emerging young artists and foster new works in opera and ballet. Moreover, it is crucial to open our art form up to young audiences and strengthen international cooperation. The FEDORA Platform combines these aspects perfectly!"

Theater Magdeburg is one of the leading repertory theatre in the state Saxony-Anhalt with its own resident drama, opera, ballet and orchestra ensembles. The Theatre engages approx. 450 staff members full time, including set and costume workshops, technical and transport departments. Each year, around 30 new productions are realized (many of them co-productions with international partners) – and 1000 shows are performed (from cabaret to grand opera). In addition, Theater Magdeburg regularly presents productions created or adapted for children and adolescents in order to engage young audiences. As part of an on-going outreach program, the theatre has ensembles of non-professional local actors at different ages who explore the performing arts in the context of a professional theatre. The education department offers a diverse program including teacher training and preparation and pre- and post-performance workshops addressing performance themes for school children of all ages.
