Bochum is home to a very special sense of humour. So it’s surely no coincidence that Germany’s only variety theatre in a circus tent put down its roots here in 1999 after touring the country for 7 years.

When its founders Ronny and Silvia Cabello plus Jörg Richter performed their world premiere in 1992 in Travemünde, they called their show “Variatio delectat – There’s nothing like change”! The bill still reflects this motto.

Every two months the team stages a completely new show centring on a fresh topic. But one thing doesn’t change: the audience is kept on the edge of their seats and in stitches of laughter: The highly original combination of daring acts and lively comedy is a wonderfully entertaining spectacle which fascinates the audience night after night. The changing team of international artistes guarantees world-class entertainment.

There is pleasure too for the taste buds. Treat yourself to a delicious meal prepared by the kitschen team while watching the show. And after the show you can finish off the evening in the cosy bar of Varieté et cetera.
