Commissioned work for the Landestheater Linz

The Wave is based on the famous experiment of teacher Ron Jones, who in 1967 transformed an American high school class into a kind of fascist movement within a few days. When things get out of control and the structures that have been rehearsed show increasingly totalitarian traits, the teacher wants to stop the experiment - but the members of "The Wave" oppose him. - Or Matias, who has broadway experience, wrote The Wave as a commissioned work for the Landestheater Linz.

Song cycle by Franz Schubert | With audience favourite Martin Achrainer

Franz Schubert's Winter journey is a marvel of emotional narrative art. In Hermann Schneider's scenic realisation, the 24 songs of love and suffering become an echo chamber of longings, cinematically overwhelming in the setting by Falko Herold and Patrick Bannwart. Due to the great demand, the production with Martin Achrainer and Tommaso Lepore returns to the Großer Saal Musiktheater for three performances. "A perfect evening of music theatre that captivates us from the first to the last moment." Concerti


An amusing singspiel with music by Franz Schubert!

Generations of operetta lovers have been moved by Heinrich Berté's touching and cheerful Blossom Time (Das Dreimäderlhaus) when they felt sorry for the poor composer Franz Schubert when he was forced to renounce his love for the charming Hannerl. Of course, the Biedermeier idyll shown here has little to do with Schubert's actual life and love reality. And so Ola Rudner (music) and Angelika Messner (lyrics), with a great deal of wit and empathy, have given this old operetta a fresh cell treatment and reconciled it with the current state of Schubert's biography. "That has wit" OÖNachrichten


With the catchy tune and world hit

Hardly any other part is so closely associated with the Linz world star Richard Tauber as that of Prince Sou-Chong from Franz Lehár's The Land of Smiles. The composer and "his" tenor, whose personal "Tauber-Lied" "Dein ist mein ganzes Herz" (Your is my whole heart) was once again triumphant at the world premiere in Berlin in 1929. On the occasion of Franz Lehár's 150th birthday, the Landestheater is showing a new production of this most successful Lehár-Tauber operetta. 
Premiere | 9 October 2020 | Großer Saal Musiktheater


With TANZLIN.Z and music by Modest Mussorgski and sound by RANDOMHYPE

With Pictures at an Exhibition, Mussorgski creates a powerful-sounding piano cycle whose modernity and timbre already foreshadow the 20th century. Together with the sound composer and DJ Christian Düchtel alias RANDOMHYPE, Mei Hong Lin delves choreographically deep into the sound masses of the work, in order to reshape familiar movement material with TANZLIN.Z and place it in a different context. TANZLIN.Z and Mussorgski: reframed. Join us on a time travel through beat and soul worlds, into a digital and analog sound cosmos!


Édith Piaf was a force of nature. Her numerous lovers, all of whom sooner or later fell from grace and were replaced, could sing a song about it. Édith was free and dangerous, had seen and done everything, and that could be seen and heard. Pam Gems wrote the biographical musical Piaf for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1978, which quickly conquered the stages of the world. In bursting scenes, she suddenly illuminates stations from Édith Piaf's fascinating life. The piece is peppered with Piaf's great chansons like "L'accordéoniste", "Padam", "La vie en rose", "Mon dieu", "Milord" and "Non, je ne regrette rien". With audience favourite Daniela Dett as Édith Piaf.


Director Hermann Schneider, conductor Markus Poschner

Two works, two composers, two women's fates, one evening and the big question: How far do we go for those we love? Ludwig van Beethoven's only opera Fidelio and Mark-Anthony Turnage's dramatic scene Twice through the heart are devoted to this question in a way that is both touching and differentiated. Next to the heroically loving Leonore stands the gripping fate of a nameless lover. In dialogue with Turnage's opera rarity, Beethoven shines in a new, exciting light, just in time for his 250th birthday. Get involved in an extraordinary evening!


38 new productions from opera / operetta, musical, dance, drama and young theater

Director Hermann Schneider presented his fifth season at the Landestheater Linz today under the motto FREIHEIT (FREEDOM). 38 new productions - including ten premieres, two Austrian premieres and a German-language premiere - are on the program. There are also four reopenings.
