The Austrian prize for musical theatre
Hosted by Christoph Wagner-Trenkwitz

* abgespielt

At the instigation of Karl-Michael Ebner and the Association of Volksoper Wien Soloists, Austria’s first prize for musical theatre is being awarded at a ceremony to be held at MuTh.

Working in a total of ten categories, a panel of respected individuals from various countries will pick the best opera, operetta, musical and ballet. This prizegiving ceremony will provide an opportunity to witness the full breadth of a genre which spans singing, drama and dance.

The evening will focus on the artists whose work – in city theatres, State theatres and national theatres – continues to make Austria a major centre for musical theatre. But this new prize for musical theatre not only salutes the prizewinners – it also serves to give the genre itself the recognition in Austria which it rightly deserves. The winners of the ten categories will be selected by a number of prominent figures, who will be able to call upon their substantial knowledge and experience in their particular fields.

Christoph Wagner-Trenkwitz will be your host for the evening.

Tickets: € 35,-
