In the 19th century, German-language theatre took place in a lot more places than was initially thought. This particularly applies to geographical areas outside the current borders of Germany and Austria. Judging by the documentation consisting of theatre almanacs and journals, which includes more than 4,000 cities (427 of them in the Bohemian lands alone), the volume on the Czech Republic will offer surprising insights into what used to be German-language theatre.
