Der kleine Prinz

Family opera for young & all aged 6 and above




“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye,” says the fox to the little prince. Does this sentence seem familiar? With its wise and heart-warming messages, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been a firm favourite with young and old for decades and, having lost none of its topicality, remains a staple of young people’s literature today. Now, the world of opera has also discovered the work as suitable subject matter, and La Scala in Milan commissioned the Italian composer Pierangelo Valtinoni with adapting the tale as a family opera. The result is a work full of enchanting and romantic music which makes it easy for us to accompany the little prince on his unique journey from planet to planet. On the way he has remarkable encounters with a pilot, a fox and even a chorus of roses that tell him all sorts of things about life. A wonderful tale of responsibility, humanity and, above all, friendship.


Matinee for young & all

1 DECEMBER 2024, 10 AM & 11 AM

Would you like to meet the little prince in person and see for yourself what it sounds like when he talks to his friend, the pilot? Would you like to see how the professionals and the conductor rehearse a song from the opera? Young & all can do this at the interactive matinees for our production, Der kleine Prinz.

An exciting voyage of discovery through the Theater an der Wien

The magic of the theatre for young & all aged 6 and above

PREMIERE: 24 NOVEMBER 2024, 11 AM & 2 PM



The adventure begins, the excitement is intense – as we set out on a voyage of discovery through the newly refurbished Theater an der Wien, bringing stage stars of yesteryear back to life as we go. In the voyage of discovery Bravissimo!, Sebastian Brand and Florian Stanek combine expert knowledge of the theatre’s 200-year history with an action-packed challenge for all visitors aged 6 and above. When the visitors take on creative challenges together with the artists, the focus is firmly on fun, thrills and, above all, music. We look forward to welcoming all our guests, whether young or evergreen, opera veterans or “philistines"!

TaWumm! Club Night

The club for young people aged 16 to 24

Are you aged between 16 and 24? You’re unfamiliar with opera but would like to know more about it? Or you’re already great fans of musical theatre and/or have always wanted to get to know theatre from a different perspective? Whatever background you have, come along and be part of TaWumm! Club Night! Together we sit in on rehearsals and performances and meet artists such as singers and directors. But we also take a look behind the scenes and get to know the people who perform backstage. In workshops with a focus on a particular theme and with different leaders you are free to choose whichever artistic activities you fancy. You can try singing, dancing and acting – no limits are imposed on your creativity. The main thing is that you make musical theatre – and lots of it! Previous knowledge or experience is not necessary. Just be open, honest and critical – that’s what we want.
