Opera houses and theatres are places where you can enjoy culture, forget about the daily grind and get a new perspective on life. "A society without theatre is a society without imagination". This statement does not originate from the district of Heinsberg, but considering the great number of theatres and opera houses within a 50 minute car journey, there are many people in our district who can confirm that it is true. In the terms of "high art" the region is way ahead of the Semperoper and the cultural capital Dresden.
