Oper, Weihnachtskonzert und die schönsten Chormelodien

For the Vienna Boys' Choir, there is a very big number attached to this jubilee season. It was in 1498 that Emperor Maximilian I moved his court and his music to Vienna. This is therefore considered the year when the world-famous Choir was born. So, to mark its 525th birthday, the famous institution has gifted itself a new opera production, in which the young choristers, directed by Douglas Fitch, set out in search of Mozart’s opera fragment “L’oca del Cairo”. This year also marks the 10th birthday of the MuTh theatre and concert hall, a place which has served as an artistic home for the Choir. The New Year Matinee, with the brilliant Janoska Ensemble, will soon get everyone into a celebratory mood. In keeping with a fine tradition, “Gute Hirten” (the Good Shepherds) sets a reflective tone for Christmas; and in their “Friday Afternoons”, the choristers will entertain and enthral their Viennese audience with the some of the most beautiful choral pieces from their 525-year history.

Shepherds play an important part in the Christmas story; many have marvelled at their faith, their dignity and their constancy. And here at MuTh, “The Good Shepherds” Christmas concert has become a tradition for all the Vienna Boys Choir students. This year’s centrepiece is the rarely performed Dixit Dominus and Magnificat KV 186g (193), written by the 18-year old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The concert closes with the Vienna Boys Choir, the Vienna Girls Choir, Chorus Juventus and Schubert-Akademie all performing together.

One of the Vienna Boys Choirs goes delving into the life of Mozart. In the process they discover two incomplete works, which Mozart had decided not to finish. The music is heavenly, but the script – well, that’s a little disappointing. Suddenly they realise anyone can contribute something here - a look, or a gesture, or a joke. How did the Choir manage to turn all this into a finished piece? And what has an old opera got to do with the children of today? Come along to MuTh and find out! To celebrate their 525th birthday, the Vienna Boys Choir have decided to treat themselves and their audience to this new opera production. Directed by Doug Fitch, it is based on Mozart’s operatic fragment “L‘oca del Cairo”.
