This list can only offer a selection of the historic theatres in Europe, since many of them are not yet online. Wherever possible we link you to the official homepage of a theatre. Where such a homepage does not exist yet, we bring you to another site offering comprehensive information on this theatre. In a few cases a direct link to the relevant information is not possible - you are then led to a superordinate address from where you can proceed.

The list is updated regularly. Suggestions for interesting pages are welcome.
