Innehalten (Pause for Reflection) – Nichts als die Welt
The Vienna Boys' Choir, with guest speaker Michael Schottenberg

* abgespielt

On this occasion, the “Innehalten” programme includes that wonderful sacred music – so rich in spirituality –  that forms the original and quintessential repertoire of the Vienna Boys’ Choir, the celebrated Nicolaus Copernicus and the theme of “Nichts als die Welt” (Nothing but the world). Michael Schottenberg offers his reflections on these topics.  The Viennese actor and director has been at the forefront of the Wiener Volkstheater’s development for the last ten years.
