New Year's Eve Concert at Theater an der Wien | Ossia "Intermezzo with 3 Mezzi"


There are many ways of spending the few hours on 31 December between nightfall and the beginning of the new year at midnight. One particularly crazy one would be to mark the Theater an der Wien’s anniversary by walking round the building ten times singing the Donauwalzer. But maybe it would be a better idea to go into the Theater an der Wien itself to be with Angelika Kirchschlager and Anne Sofie von Otter and celebrate the new year with lieder and songs by Kurt Weill, George Gershwin, Jacques Offenbach, Erich Wolfgang Korngold and others. Of course, this concert is also intended to set the mood for the premiere of Die Dreigroschenoper which will be held in January 2016 to begin the tenth anniversary year of the Theater an der Wien as a new opera house.

You can expect other guests as well. And a few musical surprises. Only one thing is certain: the gala concert ends at around 10 p.m. with a glass of champagne and a brief speech by the host to toast the new year.
