For the role of "Hotel Strindberg"

Caroline Peters received the first prize on the night of Gala in the setting of the "Teseo" barok opera stage with a live stage orchestra. Members of the Burgtheater ensemble Germany received Nestroy as the Best Actress for her role in "Hotel Strindberg" Simon Stone, where she was selected as "Actress of the Year" in a review of the journal "Theater Heute". Currently, he is also seen in the comedy Sönke Wortmann "The First Name" in theaters.

"You're a genius!"

The famous Australian Australia, Alice Babidge, changed the stage of the Akademi Theater to the Hotel Strindberg, a three-story doll house with two rooms per floor plus a simple staircase to the right. In two pauses, the torn front of the hotel looks like going up one level, one deeper. So you get the last action and the breakfast and reception room to deal with it. The fourth wall for the viewer exists as a glass wall. Babidge thanked Burgtheater director Karin Bergmann for his trust and director Simon Stone for their collaboration: "You're a genius!"

Supports the role award for Dörte Lyssewski

The Nestroy for the best supporting role went to German actress Dörte Lyssewski, since member of the 2009/2010 ensemble at the Burgtheater. He was honored for his role as Annemarie Krause in the theater production of the academy "Before Sunrise" by Ewald Palmetshofer after Gerhart Hauptmann and was grateful especially to the writer Palmetshofer and director Parizek.
