The first German court theater, founded in 1656 in Heidelberg, so far is inexistent in the view of scientific research. Only in the historiographic offside one can find a newspaper article from 1858 with now lost sources: contractual agreements between the elector palatine Karl Ludwig and a professional theater company regarding a half-yearly subsidized spoken theater for court audience and town citizens are document of a cultural policy pioneer achievement avoiding confessional conflicts. This visualizes the artistically groundbreaking careers of the entire personelle, of which the leading forces also strongly influenced following courtly institutions and carried esthetic standards of the residence culture into the commercial stage experience.
