On Thursday 16 May 2024, the Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg unveiled their programme for the 2024/2025 season at a press conference held at the Grand Théâtre in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg.

Tom Leick-Burns, Artistic Director and General Manager of Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, delivered an energetic, multilingual presentation in which he announced that the new season would have a special generational focus, namely shining a spotlight on adolescence. Within this, the theatres are hoping to "build bridges" both between generations and particularly with young people in Luxembourg City. There is also an emphasis once again on multilingual and multidisciplinary creation with the upcoming season set to showcase both local and international talent. Accessibility and inclusion are key too, with the extension of audiodescriptions and surtitles (e.g. in English on selected Fridays).

Programme highlights for those looking for English-language productions include:

Stolen Ground, a play by local poet / novelist Anna Leader which tells the story of a friendship put to the test when the colonial past of one girl's grandfather comes to light.

Link In My Bio, an opera by Charlotte Marlow and Dirty Freud which will have its world premiere at the Grand Théâtre in December 2024.

Noises Off, a co-production between the Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg and British theatres based on Michael Frayn's farce of the same name.
