In his grotesque work ›Musique pour les soupers du Roi Ubu‹, Bernd Alois Zimmermann created a macabre collage. Widely varying musical quotations fit together like a jigsaw to form new associations that are sometimes absurdly alien, sometimes ironic. Is this a biting satire of the appropriation of art?

But King Ubu is not the only character who curses and swears like a berserk petty-bourgeois, Pulcinella, a figure from the southern Italian popular theatre, was always ready to be as scurrilous as he could be. He fascinated Stravinsky: “The Pulcinella was a great, drunken lout whose every gesture, and probably every word, if I had understood, was obscene.”

Lucienne Renaudin Vary celebrates Astor Piazzolla’s 100th birthday with fascinating trumpet music. Piazzolla, the great tango composer of the 20th century, was ready to explore different musical worlds. Taking jazz, pop and classics as his inspiration, he created the Tango Nuevo and brought it out of the gutter into the polite world of European art music.

Parking Flat Day Rate

Make use of our flat day rate for parking. It only costs 4 euros. One useful tip: you can pay at the pay stations in the multi-storey car park itself or in the stairwell either when you return to your vehicle or in advance of attending events. That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.


It goes without saying that the Historische Stadthalle is equipped to provide access for disabled people.

Wheelchair ramps and lifts (with announcement) will provide you with easy access to all rooms.

Parking spaces for disabled people are available both in the multi-storey car park and in the Südstrasse car park.

Toilets for disabled people can be found on the ground floor (to the right of the main entrance) at the eastern end of the foyer. They are clearly signposted.

An unlimited number of wheelchair places is available in the Großer Saal.
