Vienna's Youngest and Oldest Opera House

Vienna's Youngest and Oldest Opera House

Built in 1801 in keeping with the spirit of Mozart by the composer's librettist Emanuel Schikaneder, it has seen numerous performances of historical significance, including Beethoven's sole opera, Fidelio. The theatre has been casting its spell for over two centuries now thanks to its exceptional acoustics and its authentic, intimate atmosphere.

To coincide with the celebrations marking the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth in 2006, the Theater an der Wien was reopened in January of that year as the new opera house of the City of Vienna. Since then, it has presented itself as an innovative "stagione" opera house. The contemporary and outstanding musical quality of the productions make the venue on Wienzeile a centre of baroque opera and modern music theatre in Vienna. Productions are presented under the stagione system, with one premiere a month: this means that those performing on the stage and in the orchestra pit remain unchanged from the first performance to the last, which guarantees that the very highest international standards are constantly maintained.

Since the 2012-13 season, the Theater an der Wien has expanded its artistic activities by staging performances at the Kammeroper, while the Junges Ensemble des Theater an der Wien provides an important platform for young artists.

In 2015, the Theater an der Wien began its tenth season. Director Roland Geyer says of the theatre's successful strategy: "Since 2006, the Theater an der Wien has shown hundreds of new opera productions and enjoys an excellent reputation at home and abroad as a producer of first-class music theatre projects and one of Europe's foremost stagione opera houses."

The modern, open-minded approach to music theatre demonstrated by the works performed and the international artists is further underlined by the building itself, its architecture and the vibrancy of its location. The surroundings, the atmosphere and the perfect acoustics in the historic theatre encourage visitors to open their senses to beauty. The Theater an der Wien deliberately enters into a symbiotic relationship with the vibrant area around the Naschmarkt street market and the cultural scene in and around the Schleifmühl quarter.
