Music by Leonard Bernstein - with the Bruckner Orchestra Linz

Sixteen years after the legendary Linz performance of West Side Story, departing Chief Musical Director Dennis Russell Davies and Linz Head of Musicals Matthias Davids come together again to present - in Leonard Bernstein's 99th year - another of his musical theatre classics. In On the Town (1944), three sailors conquer pulsating New York City. Every number shows why Bernstein and Comden & Green (Singin’ in the Rain) are regarded as true masters of their trade.  More


Music theatre by Michael Obst based on the fantasy novel by Alfred Kubin

In 1908, the graphic artist and illustrator Alfred Kubin wrote Die andere Seite [The Other Side], a fantastic novel that greatly impressed Franz Kafka. It tells the adventure of a journey to a strange city on the other side of the world. What begins like a hopeless dream, develops more and more into a mesmerizingly apocalyptic scenario. In 2010, Michael Obst composed the music, in which tender a cappella choir passages alternate with acoustically stunning mass scenes; wildly acid passages alternate with morbid and fragile beauty.

Opera in five acts by Paul Hindemith

In 1957, Paul Hindemith premiered his opera, Die Harmonie der Welt [The Harmony of the World] - about the life and work of Johannes Kepler. Needless to say: the city of Linz is playing a major role in this opera as well. Of course, Hindemith also reflects about the experience of Nazi terror when he poses the question what sense art and science can make in politically problematic times. Yet the composer dispenses with all superfluous late-Romantic pomp. Yet his music is as sensuous as it is intelligent, as modern as it is familiar. More


Musical by Bruce Joel Rubin, Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard

Sam and Molly are newly in love and have just moved into a new apartment. But one evening, the unimaginable happens: Sam is shot and killed in a robbery. While Molly mourns him, Sam wanders around as a good ghost and discovers that Molly, too, is in danger of losing her life. But as a ghost he can neither be seen by the living nor interfere in what is happening … – In 1990, the film thrilled a whole generation. Since 2011, this musical adaptation is conquering the stages of the world. More


Dramma giocoso by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The myth of Don Juan: The "Fragrance of Women" turns the perpetual seducer into an addict and then into a man possessed. The list of literary and musical arrangements of this great masterpiece - ever since Tirso de Molina's Rogue of Seville - is virtually endless. Mozart's and Da Ponte's version of the subject concerning Don Giovanni, the "punished lecher“, not only represents the highlight of this long array. E. T. A. Hoffmann also called it "the Opera of all Operas".  More


Operetta by Ralph Benatzky

There is high season in the "White Horse Inn" ("Im Weissen Rössl"): The vacationers and fortune hunters are mostly summer guests from northern Germany. Their contact with the Upper Austrian staff - up front Lady Innkeeper Josepha Voglhuber and her head waiter Leopold - repeatedly results in loving culture shock. Yet never mind the stiff northern characters. It's "Easy to be happy in Salzkammergut!" With Ralph Benatzky's operetta The White Horse Inn, you can expect a satirical, humorous "Ode to Summer Vacation". More


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.


Dance theatre by Mei Hong Lin, Music by Alexander Zemlinsky

The King of the Sea’s daughter falls in love with an earthly prince and enters the human world to look for him, although she is in great pain with every step she takes. In 1902 himself in the throes of unrequited unconditional love, Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky found encouragement and inspiration in Hans Christian Andersen’s The little Mermaid for his symphonic poem. He cleverly employed heartrending music to express the psychological process of losing a beloved person, rejection and suffering. More
