mumok | Hofstallung


"Off to make-up" is also the motto for the youngest artists. Children will not only get to know the make-up artists of the MusikTheater an der Wien, but also the animals from Leoš Janáček's opera Das schlaue Füchslein. Whether a dragonfly is painted on the cheek or their face made up as a fox, frog or rooster is decided by the children themselves.



11 AM, 1 PM & 3 PM

Amahl Rhythm & Paint!
Duration ca. 30 minutes

mumok | Atelier


In the workshop "Amahl Rhythm & Paint", music and painting merge. A percussionist not only plays melodies from the family opera Amahl und die nächtlichen Besucher, but also presents the versatility of his instrument. In the studio, the audience can create their own works of art to the music.



1.15, 2.15 & 3.15 PM
