Exhibition: Theatre. Building. Effects!

April 18, 2016

The architect Max Littmann (1862-1931) built three theatres in Munich: in 1901 the Prinzregententheater and the Schauspielhaus (now the home of the Munich Kammerspiele), and in 1908 the Künstlertheater in the exhibition park at Theresienhöhe. These theatres feature prominently in the exhibition about Max Littmann, who also created many other theatre buildings.

The exhibition includes original models and plans by Max Littmann, and numerous historical photographs and photo postcards in which the aura of the period has been preserved. An exciting chapter of Munich’s history, which many people may be unfamiliar with, is revealed in a vivid and engaging way.

The exhibition is to be staged as part of the EU project “The History of Europe Told by Its Theatres”.
