open air theatre

Any idea how to tag open air theatres? These are definitly no buildings :-) -- Schusch 23:43, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

I am having the same problem, I am going for temporarily tag the seatings as amenity=theatre and theatre:type=amfi. Maybe tag the stage as amenity=theatre and theatre:stage=yes. --Skippern 16:30, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
I have also had problems with this several times. I have searched around and it seems that different people tagged little different. There are many open air stages around the world, and I think we should create a proposal to develop a general standard how these scenes and the stand should be tagged.--Magol 10:01, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Might I suggest amenity=theatre with covered=no? Although that doesn’t help when the stage is covered and the seats are not…. I also see a few uses of theatre:type=amphi and theatre:type=amfi. Wtachi (talk) 01:33, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Well, taginfo states, that theatre:type=amphi is the most common. Wicking (talk) 09:36, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Theather genres

It would have been much more useful to have genres like this: theatre:genre:x=yes to allow multi-genre use be described without semicolons as it seems quite likely with this tag. Also useful would be to have the super-classes (e.g. theatre:genre:speech=yes, etc) which is now only present in the headers but no tagging given. Ij (talk) 09:01, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

varieté vs. variety

Shouldn't the value "varieté" be spelled "variété"? --Zethradon (talk) 17:20, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

No, there are 9 times theatre:genre=varieté see--geozeisig (talk) 07:02, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Proper French is "variété", though, and I suppose a US spelling would be "variety". Is this how the word is spelled in England? --Zethradon (talk) 06:23, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
You're right, in english it is variety (show). So, maybe we can still change it, since there are not so many uses yet.

Langenscheidt translates the German "varieté" into "variety theatre, music hall, AE vaudeville theatre". Oxford defines 'variety' for both BE/AE as "a form of television or theater entertainment consisting of a series of different types of acts, such as singing, dancing, and comedy"

All is exactly what was intended with the original German "varieté" in the Wiki. (Apparently in language, DE:varieté has been borrowed from FR:variétés, losing some fine details when passing the border)

Thus yes we should to change it to theatre:genre=variety.

OK I changed the german Wiki and some tags in the database--geozeisig (talk) 06:57, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

'variety' is fine, it should just be said a bit clearer it means the 'varieté' diversity of elements within a show, not that 'a variety' of different shows is performed. --Polarbear w (talk) 22:05, 24 January 2019 (UTC)


What is the boulevard genre? I can't find anything about it searching online. --MRPockets (talk) 03:50, 14 August 2016 (UTC) --Althio (talk) 06:57, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Entertainment music

How would a theatre:genre=* be described for entertainment music? For example, Rock concert, pop music or hits etc. You could add theatre:type=concert_hall but which genre would you choose?--geozeisig (talk) 07:43, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

I'd see the genre tag as having an open list of values. "popular_music" could be a wide-range value if the venue is not dedicated to a particular stream, but if the latter is the case, I'd see "jazz" or "rock_music" possible as well. --Polarbear w (talk) 15:25, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
