Four variety theatres, four unique styles

GOP-Entertainment Group, operating four variety theatres, stands for art-forms of Varieté on the highest level. Each theatre convinces with its own style, unique venues and wonderful atmospheres. The GOP-Varieté in the Georgspalast in Hanover is the original home of the GOP-Entertainment Group. It is the only remaining variety theatre in Germany which still plays at its original venue of the period from the 1920s to the 1950s. High-calibre live entertainment, a long and proud tradition and regularly changing shows with story-lines running through it provide a world-class performance.
The GOP-Varieté Theatre in Essen is characterised by artistry of the highest standard. The shows change every two months. Acrobatics, conjuring, juggling, music and comedy are linked together by intelligent, witty compèring. Established, world-class artists appear alongside new young talents who, while keeping faith with tradition, are developing modern innovative acts.
In the magnificent Kaiserpalais, formerly the Spa Rooms of the spa town of Bad Oeynhausen, is the GOP Varieté auditorium, located under the great dome at the very heart of the building. The restored palace offers not only a historic backdrop, but also sufficient space and the most modern stage technology for elaborate productions. This, together with the gastronomic delights makes the Kaiserpalais a centre of exclusive entertainment.
Since September 2005, also the GOP-Varieté in Münster emphasises with its modern shows by world-class international artists and its creative cuisine an all-round enjoyment and live entertainment. The person of top chef Frank Buchholz, a master of culinary "variety", creates a unique atmosphere in this new variety theatre.
