Premiere: Mozart's "Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro)"

The story could be quite simple: Figaro loves Susanna, Susanna loves Figaro and they want to marry. If it weren't for Count Almaviva, an absolutist ruler and a womaniser, who also has his sights set on Susanna and forgets all about his wife, who loves him dearly. The rousing, comic, touching story of Le nozze di Figaro unfolds in the space of a single day and tells of love, passion and intrigue to spectacular music in one of the core pieces of European opera. The production is directed by François De Carpentries and conducted by Markus Poschner of the Bruckner Orchestra Linz.
Premiere | 15 January 2022, 6.30 p.m. | Großer Saal Musiktheater

For all other performances in the Musiktheater (BlackBox, BlackBox Lounge, Orchestersaal, FoyerBühne) and the venues on the Promenade (Schauspielhaus, Kammerspiele, Studiobühne, Unteres Vestibül) the 2-G rule applies (proof of vaccination or recovery; but no PCR test required).
If the relevant proof is not available or cannot be presented, admission may not be granted.
If the result of a PCR test is not received in time, a rapid antigen test may be presented as an exception. However, it must be possible to credibly prove that the PCR test was attempted in time.

Verdi's most spectacular opera Aida celebrated its premiere at the Musiktheater on 29 December.

The fact that the mezzo-soprano desires the tenor, who in turn passionately loves the soprano, is a basic constellation familiar from countless operas. This situation is often combined with the fact that tenor and soprano belong to opposing camps. Giuseppe Verdi also uses this plot pattern in his Aida. But his musical approach is so sensitive and his dramaturgy so skilful, allowing intimate scenes to meet spectacular mass performances, that it is a real pleasure and delight for all opera lovers (and those who want to be)!
