Theatrescapes
Mainfranken Theater Würzburg

Esther Schweins in the "Adligen Damenstift Heilige Anna"? That only happens in the "Theatre Landscapes", this time from Würzburg, where exactly 200 years ago the Damenstift was converted into a theatre to enrich the tradition-rich residential city on the Main with another cultural gem.

The Würzburg theatre quickly acquired the reputation of being the starting station for very talented young talent. At the beginning of his career, Richard Wagner, who was 20 years old at the time, was "chorus rehearser" and "director of pantomime" in Würzburg. Today, his great-granddaughter Katharina Wagner also works at the house and made her debut as an opera director in 2002 with the production of "The Flying Dutchman".

Esther Schweins presents the exciting history of the house and examines its significance for Würzburg and Franconia. In addition to opera singer Waltraud Meier and artistic director Hermann Schneider, vintner Ludwig Knoll and author Peter Roos also have their say. Esther Schweins also explains what connects Edith Piaf with the Mainfranken Theater.
