Die Dubarry
The Dubarry tells of the social rise of the working girl Jeanne Bécu to the wealthy mistress of Louis XV. The milliner loves the painter Rene Lavallery, but an intrigue suddenly gives her the chance to become the king's mistress. The choice is not only one for a man, but also for a whole new way of life. What losses does the “way up” require? To what extent does Jeanne allow herself to be corrupted for this?
A quarter of a century ago, the legendary director Achim Freyer staged La Cenerentola at the Volksoper. His imaginative, witty and colorful version immediately became a hit with the public – and can now be seen again.
Operetta pope Volker Klotz describes Die Fledermaus as the “ne plus ultra of Viennese operetta”. The Volksoper is considered the most “Viennese” opera house in the city. So it is not surprising that we consider Johann Strauss's masterpiece to be our family silverware and cherish and care for every production of the work in our repertoire accordingly. No other work has been played more often at the Volksoper...

The triumph of drag queens at the Volksoper began as early as 1991, when nightclub star Zaza – Albin in his middle-class life – first entered the stage together with his partner George in La Cage aux Folles: “I am what I am, and what I am is unusual.” The performances were stormed, the play was restaged by Melissa King in 2021/22.

Mozart's "The Magic Flute" is a collective cultural heritage and the most-performed opera of all. It combines magic fairy tales and educational novels, Masonic symbolism and the tradition of the Viennese suburban theater from the 18th century. It is enigmatic and contradictory, and that is its quality. At the Vienna Volksoper, Mozart's universal work is a fixed star in the repertoire.
The search for a male movement vocabulary challenges the laws of gravity in a breathtaking way. In 1992, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker was inspired by the inventive counterpoint in Beethoven's string quartet op. 133 to create her choreography »Great Fugue«, with which the Vienna State Ballet presented a work by the important Belgian dance artist for the first time. With her regular appearances at Impulstanz and most recently at the Wiener Festwochen, she is by no means unknown in Vienna.
