The theatre hall with around 1,500 seats presents itself as a “Lady in Red” in bright red. The highlight: the curved bands of light on the ceiling, which give the historic theatre a modern flair. In the stalls, every odd-numbered row from row 7 is raised, and every row from row 19 is raised. Row 4 is also raised. The auditorium is also equipped with an induction system in the stalls and balcony to ensure that visitors with hearing impairments can also enjoy the theatre to the full.
At the beginning of each year, the Deutsches Theater is transformed into Munich’s largest ballroom. The 1,500 or so seats including the podium are then removed, the dance floor underneath is uncovered and suitable platforms including dinner seating are set up around it. A terrace will also be erected on the stage for visitors to take a seat – offering them a unique view of the ballroom over the heads of the orchestra. Additional light trusses with movable spotlights transform the modern theatre hall into an elegant ballroom. The dance floor in the centre of the hall offers plenty of space – whether for standard, Latin or the classic slide. The other rooms, such as the Silver Hall and the Baroque Hall, combine with the ballroom, foyer and inner courtyard to create a veritable promenade.
The baroque style with magnificent stucco and the impressive ceiling painting, which is bathed in a mysterious light by the shimmering chandelier, have been preserved despite the bombing in 1943. The Silbersaal offers space for up to 230 people (seated) or up to 399 people (standing). Artists, including cabaret artists, musicians and actors, present their programmes here in a particularly intimate setting.
Foyer & Lounge
The foyer welcomes visitors with its open and spacious ambience. Elegant pillars and a light-coloured floor create a modern flair, while contrasting red leather seats invite you to linger. A sophisticated lighting system bathes the foyer in different colours – always coordinated with the current programme. Here, the audience can get in the mood for an entertaining evening at the theatre with a glass of sparkling wine before the show begins. Drinks are available at the foyer bar, which is located at the end of the room. During the interval, guests can also fortify themselves here with snacks and drinks for the second half of the programme. Further bars are located in the stalls to the left and right and on the side balconies. A small lounge with its own bar below the foyer can also be reserved for smaller private groups on request.
