  • Kurt Streit takes on the lead role in the Benjamin Britten opera Peter Grimes (December 2015).
  • Kurt Weill's Dreigroschenoper with the libretto by Bert Brecht also has an excellent cast, including Tobias Moretti, Florian Boesch and Angelika Kirchschlager (January 2016). The tenth anniversary of Theater an der Wien as an opera house is also celebrated with this production.
  • Gioachino Rossini adapted a Shakespeare play in 1816 - his Othello also yearns for love (February 2016).
  • This time around, Georg Friedrich Händel's Agrippina takes to the stage (March 2016).
