Richard Wagner’s “Tristan and Isolde” in Cottbus – Culture


Wolfgang Schreiber

With around eighty locations, Germany’s music theater is clearly the opera world champion. But the great Brandenburg has only one state theater – in cottbus, the second largest city in the federal state with 100,000 inhabitants, in the former zone border area. After all, there is economic growth here: For example, the modern maintenance workshop for trains of the new ICE4 fleet is under construction, for which Olaf Scholz in Cottbus announced new jobs last May. And here, just one and a half hours by regional express train from Berlin’s overflowing theater landscape, the culture traveler will find one of the most beautiful theater buildings in Germany, built in 1908 in the elegant Art Nouveau style and completely preserved.
