The rich diversity on offer at the Theater am Marientor has been demonstrated on many an occasion. The musical theatre in Duisburg was built and inaugurated in January 1996 for Les Misérables. It was home to the production until 1999. In the meantime, it also played host to various TV productions, including Popstars (ProSieben), You Can Dance (SAT.1) and Die versteckte Kamera 2016 (ZDF).
There have also been numerous appearances and film recordings by famous German comedians – such as Dieter Nuhr, Sascha Grammel, Ralf Schmitz, Johann König and Paul Panzer – who all continue to be regular guests at the Theater am Marientor with their shows.
In 2016 the motto ‘Great Musicals in Duisburg’ was introduced and sealed with the Disney musical Beauty and the Beast. Other productions, including Dirty Dancing – Live on Stage and Mozart! – the Musical, bode well for the future of musicals in the city.
The general public can expect a varied programme of musicals, comedy, ballet and many other events in future. Enjoy the flair of the theatre!
