At the beginning of the 2018/19 season, the Young Ensemble of the Theater an der Wien will present the opera pasticcio The Magic Island - newly developed by Jean Renshaw and Dieter Senft, and consisting of works by the great English Baroque composer Henry Purcell. It is based on Shakespeare material (The Tempest). Comedic scenes abound out.

Angelika Kirchschlager and Erwin Steinhauer slip into the roles of the historical personalities Bertha von Suttner and Alfred Nobel in the musical chamber play Krieg und Frieden - Eine Freundschaft aus Liebe (War and Peace - A Friendship born of Love).

Giuseppe Verdi's Don Carlos is sung in French, accompanied musically by the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.

The evening L'Enfant / Olympia unites Maurice Ravel's L'Enfant et les Sortilèges and the second act from Les Contes d'Hoffmann by Jacques Offenbach. Both pieces are about children's dream worlds.

In 2019, the world of music celebrates Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday - his "comic operetta" Candide will be performed at the Kammeroper. Bernstein's lively music is full of ingeniously used allusions to styles of the most diverse musical epochs.

Six portrait concerts offer the young singers of the ensemble the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities away from the performance schedule. They arrange the program for their evening themselves and perform both songs and operatic arias.
