Music theater by Peter Androsch

Wild chants, living pictures, dismaying sounds, intimate conversations, shocking confessions, explosions, defeats, silence. The Chronicle of the Academic High School in Linz - from 1918 to the present day - tells the story of the world. Femme fatale Geli Raubal (Hitler's legendary niece) and her teacher Hermann Foppa (staunch Nazi and godfather of Jörg Haider), President of the National Council Alfred Maleta or the artists Hermann Bahr and Oscar winner Stefan Ruzowitzky - they all have one thing in common: As students or teachers of the academic high school not only left their mark on school desks and in classrooms, but also made history.

The Troubadour

Il trovatore, Verdi's most popular opera, tells a bizarre, wild story from the Middle Ages, which is energetically fueled by excessive hatred, lust for revenge, war cries, but also by romantic love and self-sacrificing devotion. Thanks to his intensely glowing music, however, Giuseppe Verdi manages to make the people of this opera very close and conquer all of us, despite the incredible events they have to go through.

Musical Comedy in three acts by Wolfgang Amadé Mozart

1911. Filmmaker Konstanze travels to the Sahara of North Africa with her assistant Blonde and cinematographer Pedrillo. In the process, they become captive to native Bedouin tribes. The "electoral Turk" and local Governor Bassa Selim buys the hostages free and keeps them under house arrest in his palace until Belmonte, Constance's fiancé, begins a daring liberation ... Inspired by the great explorers of the 19th and early 20th centuries, François De Carpentries continues the Mozart cycle in Linz.

Operetta by Carl Millöcker

Love and freedom – these ingredients make it possible to create a compelling story for every era and place. What is true love? What does personal freedom mean in a constrained society? Carl Milloecker’s operetta, The Beggar Student, skillfully tackles these major issues, thereby creating a moving tale with inspiring music that is elegant and entertaining. It effortlessly manages to thread the fine line between seriousness and amusement. Produced by the operetta specialist, Karl Absenger.

Opera by Giacomo Meyerbeer

Musically enthralling, virtually “overrunning” the audience with the force of his compositions, the operas of Giacomo Meyerbeer's (1791-1864) are composite theater presentations. He was not only an electrifying composer but a talented dramaturge who intertwines all the components of music theater such as choreography, composition, instrumentation, text, and staging into a total concept. At the Landestheater Linz, the audience can savor first hand Le Prophète, the spectacular opera that first premiered in Paris in 1849 to sensational reviews and re-experience the rise and fall of the counter-reformation Anabaptist movement in the 16th Century.

Linz has a new cultural landmark: the Musiktheater am Volksgarten

Since 2013, Linz has had a new cultural landmark: the Musiktheater am Volksgarten, Europe’s most modern opera house, which is where the operas, operettas, musicals and dance productions of the Landestheater Linz are put on. The new building stands out because of its excellent acoustics, high level of visitor comfort and state-of-the-art stage technology.


Our "The Woman Without A Shadow" is the best opera production of the year.

For the seventh time, the Austrian Music Theatre Award was awarded. This time the award ceremony took place in the Tiroler Landestheater. Our Die Frau ohne Schatten (The Woman without a Shadow) was celebrated in the autumn of 2017 by public and press. At the premiere there were standing ovations. They all agreed that this production, directed by Hermann Schneider and Musical Director Markus Poschner, became a fantastic opera evening. The jury of the Austrian Music Theatre Award also agreed with this opinion. More
