OsterKlang 2017

The majority of the productions can be experienced at Theater an der Wien. One concert will be given in the Wiener Konzerthaus and one in the Hofburg Chapel.

Dance in many aspects

The renowned Norwegian National Ballet serves up two productions: Gespenster (Ghosts) based on Henrik Ibsen's drama with music by jazz trumpeter Peter Molvær and Carmen with choreography by Liam Scarlett.

During Höllentanz, the compère Georg Wacks and his ensemble invite audiences to the legendary cabaret "Hölle" in the basement of Theater an der Wien, with curious and memorable dance hits and parodies.

Singer Elisabeth Kulman takes her audience on an adventurous roller coaster ride through the world of feelings in her solo program La femme c’est moi, accompanied by a first-class ensemble of musicians.

The concert on Maundy Thursday is given in the name of Ballet Russe: under the musical direction of Alexander Sladkovsky, the Russian State Symphony Orchestra plays the "Romeo and Juliet" suite by Sergei Prokofiev and Igor Stravinsky's "Le sacre du printemps" (The Rite of Spring).

For the concert evening on Good Friday entitled Totentanz (Dance of Death), baritone Markus Butter and pianist Christopher Hinterhuber brilliantly perform songs by Franz Schubert, Modest Mussorgsky and Franz Liszt in the Wiener Hofmusikkapelle.

The Wiener Symphoniker brings the OsterKlang Festival to a traditional conclusion on Easter Day under the direction of its lead conductor Philippe Jordan. At its "Spring in Vienna in Vienna" concert, the program American Dances, with works by Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin, can be heard in the flower-bedecked Wiener Konzerthaus.
