For all <30, we offer a wide range of events in addition to €10 tickets for selected performances, aimed at newcomers, but also at our already loyal visitors.  There are afterglows, sneak previews (dress rehearsal visits) with a regular get-together in the canteen of the Residenztheater and the Bavarian State Opera or the Open Stage at the Kulturzentrum Backstage.

Opera for 10 €! For all young adults under the age of 30, we offer discounted tickets at 10 € on all seats for selected performances. 
You can find more information about the 10 EURO TICKETS here.

Free beer after the opera, concert or ballet? That's only available with us. At selected <30 performances at the National Theater, we serve free beer in the Rheingoldbar after the performance, and a DJ ensures a good mood. This attracts not only our employees, but also many artists from the production. This gives you the chance to be close to the artists and to talk to them. The dates of the afterglows will be announced in the <30 newsletter.  

You probably only know the Sneak Preview from the cinema. For us, the sneak preview refers to a dress rehearsal visit to the upcoming premiere, i.e. the new production of the Bavarian State Opera. We give young people the opportunity to see a new production in advance. And it's even free of charge. Afterwards, we invite you to the staff canteen, where you can enjoy the evening and, if you wish, ask questions of those involved in the production. 

Together with the Backstage cultural center, we offer a workshop stage for young people. There is space for cultural and artistic activities, as well as for socio-political exchange.
