One guest, their life and a good hour of talking. This season once again the former President of the Federal Parliament Norbert Lammert invites a series of guests to come and talk at Schauspielhaus Bochum in the series Ein Gast. Eine Stunde. Each of these leading figures from the worlds of culture, business or politics will describe key events in their lives and discuss significant social and political developments with their host. Norbert Lammert is one of the most respected figures in German politics whose reputation as a thinker and speaker transcends party boundaries. This proud Bochumer is also well-known for his love of the theatre, music and literature. 


22.09.2019: Ulrich Matthes

On 22.09.2019, the day of our theatre festival for the new season, the multiple award-winning actor Ulrich Matthes will be guest of Norbert Lammert. For decades he has stood on the world' s leading stages and is known to a wide audience as an audio book speaker and from films such as Der neunte Tag, Der Untergang, Tatort: Im Schmerz geboren and Bornholmer Straße. He has also been President of the German Film Academy since 2019.

10.11.2019: Igor Levit

This time the 32-year-old exceptional pianist Igor Levit will be the guest. The New York Times has described the Russian-German musician as one of the "most important artists of his generation" and the Süddeutsche Zeitung as a "stroke of luck" for today's concert scene. Important foundations of his repertoire are Bach and Beethoven. In addition, Levit also repeatedly speaks out in a decidedly political manner and fights for left-wing humanism.
