Bühnen Bern offers over 300 performances in opera, operetta, musical, drama, ballet and dance per season (which lasts from September to July). In addition to classics, many world premieres and first performances are shown. In opera and ballet, the theatre collaborates with the Bern Symphony Orchestra. With its three stages, the VIDMARhallen on the outskirts of the city offers additional playgrounds and provides an ideal setting for theatre at the pulse of time.
The extensive programme is complemented by rehearsal visits as well as introductions to productions. For children and young people, the theatre education department offers introductions to plays and works, premiere classes, youth drama clubs for under twelve- and under two-year olds, an annual theatre education dance project and a dance club.
