Directions to Vienna Volksopera
The Volksoper Wien stages operettas as well as 18th, 19th and 20th century operas (“The Magic Flute”, “Tosca”, “La Bohemé”, etc.), classical musicals (“My Fair Lady”) and ballet. The season, which runs from September to July, consists of some 300 performances divided among some 35 different productions and revivals from previous years.
Vienna and operetta – people from far and near will join the two whenever one comes up. Intriguing melodies, swirling dancers, the joy of life – all come together in the classical Viennese Operetta. Much of the music known and loved the world over from composers such as Johann Strauß, Franz Lehár, Emmerich Kálmán … come from operettas such as “Die Fledermaus”,“The Merry Widow”, “Countess Mariza”.
With over 100 operetta performances per year the Volksoper is the world’s leading operetta specialist.
Volksoper is first-rate, the singers, the choir, and the orchestra, which is of a quality found only in Vienna. But there are more good reasons to go to the Volksoper. The first being that the ticket prices are good value, with a top ticket price of 80 Euros (excluding special events), and many tickets available for 20 Euros or less. This is considerably less expensive than the State Opera. Also, it is easier to get tickets. Check out the website for further info.
