Opera House Theater an der Wien, view from the street

OsterKlang 2016

On Good Friday, Georg Friedrich Händel's grippingly entertaining opera Agrippina takes to the stage at Theater an der Wien – which this year is also celebrating its tenth anniversary as the new Vienna Opera House. While the story here is about the lust for power and greediness in Ancient Rome, it is followed on Palm Saturday by the actual opening of the OsterKlang festival: The Wiener Symphoniker, directed by Philippe Jordan and accompanied by the Wiener Singakademie, perform Bach's Mass in B minor at the Wiener Konzerthaus.

The Minorite Church is the performance venue for particularly atmospheric programs: On Monday, 21 March, soprano Juliane Banse and eight cellists of the Wiener Symphoniker perform music by Haydn, Schubert and Orlando di Lasso under the slogan "Springtime faith". On Good Friday, the Camerata Schulz Wien presents "Sound of the Soul": works for strings by Mozart, Mahler and Pärt. On the topic of "Immortal", Baroque music from Bach to Janitsch is played on Holy Saturday.

An oratorio is performed in Italian at Theater an der Wien on Wednesday, 23 March: with Il primo omicidio, Alessandro Scarlatti created a notable musical rendering of the Cain and Abel story told in the Old Testament.

The following day in the Lutheran church, it's the turn of Sergei Rachmaninov's  Evening and Morning Hymns of Praise.

The Wiener Symphoniker traditionally celebrate Easter Sunday with their program "Frühling in Wien" at the Musikverein, this year with music by Beethoven, Ziehrer, Strauss, Suppé and Schönherr. The French pianist Hélène Grimaud is this year's guest. In the evening, the Kammeroper invites audiences to Bizet's opera Carmen – excitingly arranged in a version for five vocal soloists, accordion, violin and double bass.
