Summer Operetta- Die Fledermaus

Many questions are asked here about good summer music choices in Vienna.

Many wish to see an Opera or Operetta but the State Opera and Volksoper are closed for summer vacations.

This summer July 13- August 26

at the Schönbrunn Palace Theater

The Strauss Operetta - Die Fledermaus will be performed.

This is a very nice small theater - part of the Palace complex and makes for a very nice evening.

You can tour the Palace in late afternoon, eat in the Palace restaurant , walk in the gardens before the performance..

Good info vertical. Many people arrive during the summer and are very disappointed that the Volks and Staat are not doing anything. Are there not some operetta festivals in the outlying areas?

Many music opportunities outside of Vienna for Opera and Music in the summer.

Some bus tour companies will offer a package of transport and ticket .

Or any adventuresome tourist can easily find his / her way.

I list some -

Most famous is probably the Morbisch Festspiele at Morbisch.

This years offering is " Wiener Blut " ( Vienna Blood )

July 12- August 26 - a fantastic venue overlooking the lake with a huge production.

Tickets always sell out- but some bus companies always have a few tickets.

Morbisch and the nearby town of Rust known for wine and stork nests make a nice excursion or overninght visit from Vienna.

Another concert in Vienna - but no great PR yet.

Andre Rieu will perform on Michaelerplatz in Vienna on July 14. Tickets 135 euro +

Not far from Vienna is Baden - a nice town to visit - gardens, spas and music.

Paganini, Irma LaDuce and Sisi this summer. June - early september.

www.stadttheater-baden.at

Nabucco at the old quarry at St. Margareten- a fantastic venue from July 12

Die Fledermaus at Schloss Haindorf in Langanlois near Krems.

July 19 - August 11 a small but nice venue in wine country

www.operettensommer.at

New-

- Musikfestival at Schloss Grafenegg - music of the highest quality- in a new outdoor venue in the Schloss( castle )garden.

London Symphony , Pianists Rudoff Buchbinder ( Musical director) and Alfred Brendel , Renee Fleming , Tonkünstler Orchestra of Niederösterreich among others.

I already have tickets for the London Symphony.

For tourists- convenient shuttle transfer bus from Vienna is available too.

vertical. Thanks for posting the information on the musical choices available in summer. I have a friend who lives at Grafenegg and he has told me that they are building a major concert venue there. What a wonderful location for music along the Donau!
