Presentation: From Ithaka to Aquileia
Monday, 10 September 2012
At the start of the 2012/13 season, Director Roland Geyer will once again be holding a talk in which he and Georg Wacks, known among other things from his revues Rouge et Noir and Im Opiumrausch in the “Hölle” at the
Theater an der Wien, present the operas for the new season at the Theater an der Wien. This year the cabaret artist, literary specialist, actor and singer Georg Wacks takes you on a journey to the locations of the operas in the
12/13 season. The tour goes from Greece to Spain, then to France and finally to Northern Italy.
Georg Wacks’s perspective allows you to see the works in a very different light than is possible from the dusty, local opera guide or the innovative new staging here in our theatre. Amazing answers to unexpected questions
come to light in an amusing, off-the-wall introduction to the new season.
Admission is free for Theater an der Wien subscription holders, Friends of the Theater an der Wien and school groups participating in Jugend an der Wien projects.
