Starlight Express Theater

The Starlight Express Theater in Bochum – a theater in a class of its own that is even in the Guinness Book of Records! It was constructed in the record time of just one year and is the first and only venue ever built exclusively for a single musical. Since its construction, over 16 million people have experienced the action-packed musical penned by Andrew Lloyd Webber in this one-of-a-kind building.

The Auditorium, the Heart of the Theater. The theater’s spaciously designed auditorium accommodates 1,650 people. The centerpiece of the 1,100 square meter stage is a nine-ton bridge element that can be swiveled in any direction, constantly creating new stage tiers. Integrated high-end audio equipment assures phenomenal sound quality,
flooding the auditorium with 40,000 watts of sound. The lavish lighting system, with 800 spotlights, 60 color changers, and lasers, baths the stage in constantly changing moods and lighting effects. These one-of-a-kind stage facilities offer a platform for unforgettable product presentations and first class conferences

Event Venues. Besides the theater’s auditorium, two additional event venues are available: the “Starlight Lounge” and the “Express Bar.” Both rooms are highly flexible in their arrangement, making them ideal for the widest variety of events. The theater’s forecourt and the sizable and brightly-lit foyer can be used for larger events, offering a diverse range of options to insure the successful staging of your event.
