CUBE: The Beatles re-interpreted
A collaboration between the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna (MdW) and MuTh

* abgespielt

CUBE stands for “Contemporary Urban Beats Ensemble” – a platform that gives students the chance to explore new, cross-genre musical directions. For the 2018/19 academic year, CUBE has adopted the Beatles songbook as its point of departure and its source of inspiration. Fifty years after “Yellow Submarine”, the legendary foursome’s songs have lost none of their magic. Under the artistic direction of multiple award-winning British arranger and composer Steve Sidwell (Robbie Williams, Carole King, George Michael, Shirley Bassey etc.), these new arrangements leap into life here at MuTh courtesy of an impressive musical array, including a big band, a string orchestra, and more besides!

The mdw is one of the world’s largest and most celebrated universities in the fields of music, theatre and film. More than 3000 students from over 70 countries are enrolled in a total of 115 courses, in departments dedicated to music, the performing arts, education, and academic study.

Tickets: €20/ €17/ €13; box seats €30; Student Club, children and young people: €13/ €10/ €8
