Theater an der Wien specializes in the very finest of Baroque and contemporary operas. As a seasonal theater, there is a premiere almost every month as well as concerts and dance.

The 2014/15 program provides fascinating musical theater from Handel, Gluck and Bellini through to Olga Neuwirth and HK Gruber. The program includes traditional and concert-style operas.

The rarely performed opera "Charodeyka" by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky opens the season (September 2014). The fate of Iphigénie is recounted in the two-piece opera "Iphigénie en Aulide et Tauride" by C.W. Gluck on a single evening (October 2014). From Olga Neuwirth, one of the most distinguished Austrian composers, comes "American Lulu" (December 2014).

A wonderful belcanto opera is Vincenzo Bellini’s "La Straniera" (with Edita Gruberova and Marlis Petersen, January 2015). Giovanni Paisello’s "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" is also amongst the musical jewels (conducted by René Jacobs, February 2015). KH Gruber turned Ödön von Horvath’s play "Geschichten aus dem Wienerwald" into an opera (with Angelika Kirchschlager, March 2015). Mozart is also on the program with "Le nozze di Figaro" (conducted by Marc Minkowski, April 2015).

The concert-style operas for this season include four works by Handel: "Tamerlano", "Alcina", "Baroque Rivaries" and "Hercules". Henry Purcell’s "King Arthur" and Jean-Philippe Rameau’s "Zais" are also on the program.

A popular guest at Theater an der Wien is the Hamburg Ballet. John Neumeier choreographed the "Weihnachtsoratorium" (Christmas Oratoria) to music by J.S. Bach (December 2014).

The Young Ensemble of the Theater an der Wien can be experienced in the Chamber Opera, the second performance venue of Theater an der Wien.
