Not far from the St. Ursen cathedral, right in the heart of the baroque town of Solothurn, lies the municipal theatre. Initially, it was part of a Jesuit grammar school and, in the 18th century, had a reputation of being the most beautiful theatre hall in the Confederation. During the renovation works in 2014, a forgotten treasure was brought to light: The ornamental paintings from 1779, thus far hidden under the balustrades of the Circles. After an extensive renovation programme, they now offer an appealing contrast to the modern staircases and foyers. The municipal theatre is performing from September to June.
