A comedy with music by Erich Zeisl

The career of the Jewish composer Erich Zeisl, born in Vienna in 1905, came to an abrupt end when Austria was annexed by the Nazis. He went into exile in America where in 1952 he premiered his Comedy with Music after Büchner's Leonce and Lena. Zeisl had already finished it before going into exile. He found a playful and meaningful tone for Büchner's comedy that is not only brilliantly sparkling, but also emotionally sensitive. He mixes the late-Romantic with a grotesquely sharpened expressionist idiom of sound. 


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


Dance piece by Mei Hong Lin

Against the historical background of Taiwanese "white terror", Mei Hong Lin relates the fate of a woman completely on her own after her husband was murdered. To care for herself and her son, she decorates young brides for their wedding. The mask-like make-up is the symbol of her own being in which she is trying to cover up the actual truth - as if behind a mask. However, when the son suddenly dies, the unvarnished truth is revealed ... 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


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.


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


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



In a wager with fellow members at the London Reform Club, Phileas Fogg claims that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days! He embarks on the journey with his servant Passepartout, closely followed by detective Fionula Fix, who was hired by Stuart. Fogg’s agenda is in danger: In Paris, he happens upon a festival of the Merry Widow Hanna Glawari, in Rome, Tosca falls into his arms, in Beijing, Turandot wants to have him beheaded! The fact that Fogg is triumphant in the end, is as miraculous as any opera libretto could create … More
