Quotation

„A choral concert of superlatives"

 

„The Volksoper Chorus was outstanding, as always“

Current

The "Austrian Musical Theatre Award" in the category "Best Chorus" for 2017 has been awarded to us, the Vienna Volksoper Chorus!

"The widely varied Repertoire of the Volksoper Vienna presents a challenge to the chorus, which they master with brilliance and elan. Whether in Opera or in Musical, every note that the singers sing is perfectly placed and their enthusiasm carries over to the audience", was the Jury`s verdict.

With this fantastic piece of good news we start our new season and wish our audience many beautiful and entertaining evenings in our Opera House!
