Schauspielhaus Zürich performances in Wikidata

The goal of the project is to try to ingest all performances of the Schauspielhaus Theater in Zurich held between 1938 and 1968 in Wikidata. In a further step, data from the www.performing-arts.eu Platform, Swiss Theatre Collection and other data providers could be ingested as well.

    2. manually match entries that matched multiple entries in wikidata
    3. find out what items are missing in wikidata
    4. load them in wikidata using quick statements (quick statements 2 allow you to retrieve the Q numbers of the newly created items)
