Vienna Tourist Board invites residents and guests of the capital to join three evenings with broadcasts of opera and ballet from the Vienna State Opera.
This year, the music capital of the world celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Vienna State Opera and invites everyone to live broadcasts in Moscow. During three days on the stage of the Big Amphitheater, free broadcasts of four performances from the repertoire of the Vienna State Opera will be held.
Specially for this event, there will be installed decorations of 13.2 m height and 23.8 m width, which will recreate the building of the famous opera house. Two huge LED screens of 60 square metres will be installed on the facade of the building. Thanks to a special sound system, the famous Viennese sound will be transferred from the city on the Danube to Moscow.
Before the performance, Lyalya Kandaurova, a music journalist and author of lectures about music, will acquaint guests with the work being displayed and talk about the musical life of Vienna at the time and nowadays.
On May 25, the guests of the park will enjoy live broadcasts from the Vienna State Opera premiere of the Woman Without a Shadow. Music by Richard Strauss, the libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal.
The opera was first shown on October 10, 1919, in the Vienna State Opera, which Strauss called the “last romantic opera”. The premiere of the new staging by Vincent Huguet featuring Nina Stemme and Stephen Gould under conduction of Christian Thielemann is scheduled exactly on the day of 150 anniversary of the theater.
The show will take place in any weather.
