Overview

The Volksoper Wien, located just ten minutes outside the city centre, stages operettas "Die Fledermaus - The Bat", "Merry Widow", etc.) as well as operas ("The Magic Flute", "La Traviata", etc.), classical musicals ("My Fair Lady", "The Whizard of Oz", etc.) and ballet ("The Snow Queen", etc.). The season, which runs from September to July, consists of some 300 performances divided among some 35 different productions and revivals from previous years. Vienna and operetta - people from far and near will join the two whenever one comes up. Intriguing melodies, swirling dancers, the joy of life - all come together in the classical Viennese Operetta. Much of the music known and loved the world over from composers such as Johann Strauß, Franz Lehár, Emmerich Kálmán ... come from operettas such as "Die Fledermaus", The Merry Widow", "Countess Mariza".

The Volksoper is a wonderful theatre offering top class productions. And good seats are much more affordable than the Staatsoper. The customers are largely Viennese (rather than tourists) and includes smart immaculately behaved young people, which is lovely to see. Access from the city centre...More

In the city of Vienna, you can find a piece of art at almost every corner. Volksoper is one of the quality attraction for theatre/opera lovers. Over hundred years old ‘People’s Opera’ has nice acoustics and every play that I’ve seen had very aesthetic decoration....More

We went to VolksOper twice during our short sojourn. The VolksOper is perhaps a modest cousin of the Stadt Oper in terms of the architectural aesthetics, the interior decoration, the ticket prices and the ease of getting reasonably priced tickets. Though a bit way off...More

Sad to say this was my second choice of opera house to visit and on entering the venue, found it very underwhelming - but not so the performance of Die Fledermaus which I had seen several times before. I missed 75% of the dialogue scenes,...More

For a great price you can enjoy an opera. The popular opera is more accessible in term of price. The décor and costumes are different from the ''official'' opera and that's make it more accessible for all. You should see the kids enjoying every minute...More

Not sure. We got our tickets from the tourist info in centre of Vienna. Which is probably open every day, was very helpful and could tell us which seats were available for both the Volksoper and the Staatsoper.

Agree, smart casual...another tip, take yr own picnic, no need to spend a fortune on purchasing one, although if money no issue, part of the experience, better than booking a restaurant table
