Opera is music and theatre. What does that mean? It embraces music and drama as components of equal status. It means listening and watching in a new way, asking and answering questions in a new way – and presenting it all to an audience that is invited to form its own opinion.

We are delighted that Dr Haide Tenner has agreed to introduce the new opera projects of the Theater an der Wien and the Kammeroper at the beginning of the 2015/16 season together with guests and artists.

Haide Tenner has a longstanding association with the Theater an der Wien as former manager of the ORF Vienna Radio Symphonic Orchestra. Operagoers are familiar with the author and culture manager as former head of culture on Austrian state television, head of music at the radio station Ö1 and the creator of countless radio and television productions.

We cordially invite you to discover the fascination of the “world of opera at the Theater an der Wien”: You don’t need an opera guide! You shouldn’t listen to any analyses of works that drag on for hours, because this presentation aims to make you curious and increase your passion for musical theatre. Get a detailed summary of the 2015/16 season at the Theater an der Wien, which, from January 2016, will be dominated by the anniversary “10 years of the Theater an der Wien – the new opera house”.

The Junges Ensemble des Theater an der Wien (JET) will perform during the presentation.


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.
Bookings for this event can be made, and tickets for it go on sale, from 3 August 2015.
