Der Faust, officially Deutscher Theaterpreis Der Faust, is a German theatre prize, a national prize from 2006.[1] It is awarded annually by the organizations Deutscher Bühnenverein, Kulturstiftung der Länder [de], Deutsche Akademie der Darstellenden Künste and the state in which the award ceremony is held. The trophy was designed by the Austrian stage designer Erich Wonder [de].[2]

A jury of mostly members of the Bühnenverein considers proposals from theatres which may not name their own productions. The Jury selects three nominations per category, from which members of the Deutschen Akademie der Darstellenden Künste elect the winners. The prize is awarded in eight categories:

  • Regie Schauspiel (direction play)
  • Darstellerin/Darsteller Schauspiel (performer play)
  • Regie Musiktheater (direction opera)
  • Sängerdarstellerin/Sängerdarsteller Musiktheater (performer opera)
  • Choreografie (choreography)
  • Darstellerin/Darsteller Tanz (dancer)
  • Regie Kinder- und Jugendtheater (direction children's and youth theatre)
  • Bühne/Kostüm (stage / costumes)

Additional optional awards are a prize for a life's work (Lebenswerk) and Preis der Präsidentin (prize of the [female] president).
