Nationaltheater Mannheim Roadshow 2019
"The opera is a beautiful tower - but unfortunately without a staircase."
With this picture, the Mannheim opera dramaturgy describes the problem of an art form that is one of the most complex in our cultural landscape - and therefore usually attracts a theatrically experienced, educated, long-established audience. But how do newcomers get to the tower?
