In 2015, it will be exactly 50 years since the curtain first rose on an in-house production at one of the VBW theatres. To celebrate this anniversary, the VBW is staging a unique trip down memory lane, with a full orchestra taking the audience through five decades of the great hit musicals at the Theater an der Wien, the Ronacher and the Raimund Theater.
The show, which includes some of the best musical songs of all time, such as “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina”, “On This Night of a Thousand Stars”, “I’d be Surprisingly Good For You” and “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, tells the story of Eva Perón, wife of the former Argentine dictator Juan Perón, from her humble beginnings to her reign as national heroine.
I AM FROM AUSTRIA is a charming musical comedy, ebullient, effervescent and enchanting. A modern fairy tale full of romance and adventure but also a tumultuous comedy of errors about love, friendship and family.
The Easter Concert series will continue at the RAIMUND THEATER in 2016 with the European premiere production of a spectacular rock version of G.F. Handel’s oratorio “The Messiah”: MESSIAH ROCKS by Jason Howland and Dani Davis.
It is the story of the unconventional marriage between the actor, singer, director, writer and stage manager Emanuel Schikaneder and his wife Eleonore, the relationship between them and its impact on the artistic circles of their era.
