Vienna, the city of music. In no other place have more composers lived. Waltzes and operettas were invented here. Nowhere else can you find so many major music venues in one city, like the Musikverein, which hosts the New Year’s Concert by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
The program at the Wiener Konzerthaus ranges from classical to avant-garde, and even the renowned Burgtheater offers all styles of music – hosting performances by the legendary German punk band Die Toten Hosen among others..
Vienna State Opera
The Vienna State Opera is well known by opera fans all over the world. For many it is the symbol of Vienna. In the past, greats like Richard Strauss and Herbert von Karajan performed before enthusiastic audiences – and not much has changed in that regard today.
Year after year, famous opera stars such as Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón return to perform in Vienna’s iconic opera house. Similarly, world-renowned directors and stage designers bring new life and excitement to the stage with spectacular new productions.
