Der Zauberer von Oz

- Not available -

"The Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum is America's most famous fairy tale, which gained cult status worldwide through the film adaptation with the young Judy Garland (1939). The best-known song from it, "Over the Rainbow" by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg, was awarded the Oscar in 1940. The stage adaptation of the masterpiece in the production of Henry Mason and in the stage design of Jan Maier also became an audience hit for the whole family at the Volksoper.
Because he called the devil on a dangerous voyage around a cape, the Flying Dutchman is doomed to restless wandering and endless searching - unless he finds a woman whose unconditional loyalty brings him salvation from his undead existence. But he can only go ashore every seven years to find his soul mate ...
Mozart's “The Magic Flute” is a collective cultural heritage and the most played opera ever. It combines magic fairy tales and educational novels, Masonic symbolism and the tradition of Viennese suburban theater from the 18th century. It is puzzling and contradictory, and that is exactly its quality.
At the Volksoper Vienna, Mozart's universal work is a fixed star of the repertoire.
