About Vienna State Opera

Vienna Opera House located in the centre of the city is a magnet for tourists and music lovers from all over the world. With a striking interior and exterior façade, plus an impressive catalogue of appearances by all of the operatic greats, it’s one of the best renowned International venues. Vienna State Opera produces up to 60 operas and several ballet productions every year totalling hundreds of performances.

A beautiful marble staircase sweeps up from the main entrance hall to the first floor of the Opera House. Visitors are guided to the delicate interior architecture and colourful frescoes throughout the building. Much of the original structure which survived World War II can be viewed, including the main lobby, central staircase, Schwind Foyer and the ornate first floor Tea Salon. The “Magic Flute” frescoes on the veranda are a sight to behold and canvas paintings in the three arches depicting the ballet, comic and tragic operas are a splendid example of artwork by Franz Dobiaschofsky. Discover the Josef Gasser allegorical statues displaying the several liberal arts before heading to the Tea Salon nestled between the central boxes and the staircase. The ceilings and walls are decorated with 22 carat gold leaf and sculptures, artwork and tapestries adorn the room. Explore Gustav Mahler Hall, the Tapestry Hall and Schwind Foyer with sixteen sketched oil paintings representing well-known operas. The horseshoe-shaped auditorium is particularly impressive holding a capacity of 2,284 visitors at any one time. Enjoy the acoustics and views of the stage from the upper tier seats. Traditional reds and golds were used with ivory shades to decorate the seating, and a beautiful, striking chandelier sits central to the auditorium ceiling. Backstage guided tours are available, and visits to the famous orchestra pit which hold 110 musicians is not to be missed. For fans of opera or ballet, book tickets in advance for favourite performances and enjoy a splendid night in Vienna.

Reaching Vienna State Opera is simple. The U-Bahn and trams operate to stations close by. Alternatively, the public bus service is frequent and reliable. Walking from Haus der Musik, Karlskirche, Naschmarkt and Kunsthistorisches Museum takes around 5 -10 minutes.

Construction of the Vienna State Opera commenced around 1861, with work lasting for eight years. The impressive building was designed in Neo-Renaissance style featuring intricate detailing and beautiful frescoes throughout. The opera house was devastated during World War II.Fortunately, it was restored quickly and at great expense to the local government for the people of the city. Today, Vienna State Opera is considered one of the most important Operatic venues in the world showcasing a wealth of creative talent every year.
