Schauspielhaus Zürich

The Schauspielhaus Zurich is Switzerland’s largest theatre and one of the most influential theatres in the German-speaking world.

With five stages and some 150,000 visitors annually, it is not only a vibrant and artistically-acclaimed cultural hub in Zurich but also one of Switzerland’s most important cultural institutions.

Swiss Re has supported the Schauspielhaus for over 20 years and became one of its main partners in 2000.

In the 2016/2017 season, we are sponsoring a production of Sophocles’ "Antigone" adapted by Feridun Zaimoglu und Günter Senkel and directed by Stefan Pucher.

The Schauspielhaus Zürich takes up current world affairs in its programmes. It gives young directors the opportunity to direct a production on a renowned stage. We value the theatre’s tackling of contemporary as well as classical subjects.
