October 31st 1943 - Max Reinhardt dies


On October 31st 1943 Max Reinhardt dies in exile in New York. The Austrian Jew escaped from the Nazis in 1937 and emigrated with his wife Helene Timig from Vienna to the U.S. Before and after the World War Reinhardt had lastingly shaped the Berlin theater scene. He established a new theater and took over the management of various Berlin theaters, for example the German Theater called “Deutsches Theater” and the Peoples Stage called “Volksbühne”. In the early 20s he managed the Berlin stages and became a co-founder of the Salzburg Theater Festival. For Reinhardt the theater was a show-event. He created a new form of “director's theater” which offers large productions with elaborate stage techniques and large numbers of extras. 1911 Richard Strauss brought him to Dresden. For the premiere of "Rosenkavalier" Reinhardt staged singers like actors and thus set new standards for directing opera.
