German National Theatre - Goethe and Schiller in Childhood

Weimar Theater, which was officially opened in 1791, is considered one of the most famous opera houses of its time. Its troupe was headed by prominent German dramatists Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller. Tragedies, dramas, comedies, farces, operas and zingshpili (German comic operas) were put on the local stage under their leadership. Subsequently, the joint work of the two geniuses, literary critics, got the name "the Weimar classicism".

In 1857, bronze monuments to Goethe and Schiller were erected in front of the theater. It is noteworthy that the author of the monument - sculptor Ernst Rietschel - gave the poets the same height, while in reality Schiller was much higher than Goethe. Today, in addition to the troupe the theater has its own orchestra and owns several other venues in Weimar.
