Theater an der Wien

Vienna is a city of opera – the Theater an der Wien enjoys the favor of the Viennese audience, as do the Vienna State Opera and the Vienna Volksoper.

Productions in the 2021-22 season

  • Cavalieri's Rappresentatione di Anima et di Corpo (1600) in a production by Robert Carsen with the Baroque ensemble Il Giardino Armonico

Tip: Chamber Opera

The Young Ensemble of the Theater an der Wien can be experienced in the Kammeroper, the second performance venue of the Theater an der Wien. Much is possible: from the portrait concert to the unconventional reinterpretation of a major opera. You can get especially close to the performers in the little opera house in the heart of the city.
