Leopoldstadt

This play, beginning in 1899 and moving through six decades, focuses on the Merz family home in the heart of Vienna – at Ringstrasse. The play follows the fate of the large and wealthy Merz family through war, revolution, impoverishment, the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust. It is a panoramic and historic drama where destinies, passions, love and tragedy intertwine.

The newest play of the living classic Tom Stoppard is partly autobiographical. It premiered in 2020 in London’s West End; in autumn 2022, Leopoldstadt also reached the stage on Broadway.

Premiere on 16 September 2023 at the Grand Building of the Vanemuine Theatre
