Theater an der Wien
The Theater an der Wien starts its fourteenth season with the 2019/20 season, which is dedicated entirely to Beethoven-related topics and female figures. To mark Ludwig van's 250th birthday, not only will the new production of the 1806 version of Fidelio under the direction of Christoph Waltz take to the stage but so will new, specially commissioned projects such as the premiere of the opera Egmont by Christian Jost and Christoph Klimke.
In its series on "prominent female figures", the Theater an der Wien presents Dvořák's Rusalka, Gaspare Spontini's Tragédie lyrique La vestale, Stanisław Moniuszko's Halka, Richard Strauss' Salome, Prokofiev's Der feurige Engel and Bellini's Norma. A number of premieres and world firsts are also on the program – such as Mozart's last opera La clemenza di Tito as well as the unusual project Happiness Machine – 24 Stunden Glück of the Klangforum Wien, in which ten filmmakers, ten composers and ten musicians bring the model of the "public interest economics" to the stage in the form of cinematic musical drama.
Important artists such as Maria Bengtsson, Angelika Kirchschlager, Natascha Petrinsky, Bo Skovhus and Bertrand de Billy as well as leading ensembles such as the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Wiener Symphoniker, the Concentus Musicus Wien, and the Arnold Schoenberg Choir once again guarantee more musical world class events.
The Young Ensemble of the Theater an der Wien can be experienced in the Kammeroper, the second performance venue of Theater an der Wien.
