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.

2022/23: Sparkling music theater under new artistic direction

Stefan Herheim, one of the most sought-after opera directors of our time, is the new artistic director. The 2022/23 season lines up a huge 140 events dedicated to music theater from the Early Baroque to the present day:

  • 13 staged music theater productions
  • nine concertante opera highlights
  • late-night series and dissemination format "TaWumm!"

Stimulating and exciting productions offer a fantastic way to experience impressive oratorios by Georg Friedrich Händel, rarely performed masterpieces of Viennese classical music, passionate belcanto operas, powerful music drama of the modern age and the present day, enchanting one-act plays for the whole family and finally again the genre of operetta (Jacques Offenbach's "La Périchole"), which historically developed at the Theater an der Wien.

Until 2024: Performance venue MuseumsQuartier

Until the Theater an der Wien opens its doors again for the 2024/25 season in fully renovated splendor, the large new productions will be held in Hall E in the heart of the MuseumsQuartier – a performance venue with 800 seats and ideally suited to music theater. In this unique setting in one of the world's largest cultural areas, surrounded by fantastic museums, the innovative Tanzquartier Wien, and an appealing dining scene, there is a whole bunch of cultural synergies, right through to a cooperation with the Vienna Festival.

Tip: Kammeroper

The second performance venue of the Theater an der Wien is the Kammeroper – an ideal setting for smaller works that blend music and theater. Highly talented next-generation artists appear on stage here alongside established actors. The audience and performers get especially close to one another in the little opera house in the heart of the city.
