The Golden CISA is presented annually to artists (singers, dancers and actors) for special achievements at the Augsburg State Theatre, including prize money, in a festive setting at the end of the respective season. The respective prize-winners are selected by a jury.
In addition, in 2023 the most popular production of the past season was determined by the audience through online voting until June 27th and this audience award was presented to the director concerned. One could make your personal choice on this website under ‘Voting’.
The CISA, a legendary figure from Augsburg, was commissioned by the Theaterfreunde Augsburg e.V. and designed as a prize by the Augsburg graphic designer Axel Schäffer and figuratively designed by a company specialising in prizes of honour.
For many years before that, the Theaterfreunde Augsburg e.V. had sponsored an award which was jointly presented by the Augsburg Journal and the Theaterfreunde Augsburg to artists of the Stadttheater Augsburg.
The Theaterfreunde Augsburg e.V. wish all award winners much joy in the golden CISA, which they now receive as a visible sign of their extraordinary artistic achievements at the Augsburg State Theatre, and further toi,toi,toi for their future artistic careers.
