The Theatre

Das MuTh ist der modernste Konzert- und Theatersaal Wiens und bietet mit Klassik und Chormusik, Pop & Jazz, elektronischer Musik sowie Oper und Musiktheater ein vielfältiges Programm bei Top-Akustik und Komfort.

KONZERTSAAL, BÜHNE & PROGRAMM

MuTh is the most modern concert hall in Vienna. Having opened in 2012 with an inaugural concert by the Vienna Philharmonic and the Vienna Boys’ Choir, MuTh represents a meeting-point for music and theatre. MuTh promotes classical and avantgarde alike, and always stands for openness and diversity. With comprehensive stage facilities and a configurable orchestra pit, MuTh can function equally well as a theatre and as a concert hall. The theatre stages up to 300 productions a year. These include chamber music, children’s opera, orchestral evenings, dance projects, jazz sessions, performance art, and contemporary music. There are virtually no limits to the potential uses of our flexible space.

DER MODERNSTE KONZERT- & THEATERSAAL WIENS

The superb acoustic, the intimate atmosphere and the proximity of the audience to the stage make MuTh a favourite for both visitors and artists alike. The sheer width of the auditorium ensures good sightlines to the stage from every one of our large, comfortable seats. A modern ventilation system supplies the theatre with a continuous flow of fresh air from the Augarten outside, and adjusts the air temperature to suit the season.MuTh is the most modern concert hall in Vienna.

THE ACOUSTIC

The concert hall has a modern appearance. Angled edges are much in evidence, and the walls incorporate textured panels which overlap like scales. But these features are not for visual impact alone: designed by Quiring Consultants, this arrangement also ensures a brilliant sound in the hall. Specifically developed for a 400-seat auditorium, the acoustic has a quality and clarity normally heard in smaller-scale concert halls and opera houses, and is greatly appreciated by audience and artists alike.

There is an orchestra shell for the main stage and an acoustic sail on the apron stage. Together, these elements optimise sound projection into the hall, ensuring the audience can clearly hear characters on the stage. Textured panels transmit early reflections from the stage and orchestra pit out into the auditorium, and create a sense of being enveloped by music. The form and construction of the concert hall, combined with the range of materials selected in its design, deliver effective results across a broad acoustic spectrum. Furthermore, the special design and upholstery of the auditorium seating virtually replicates the acoustic profile of the human form, meaning that there is minimal difference between the acoustic properties of an empty seat and one that is occupied.

DIE MODERNE ARCHITEKTUR

Seen from outside, the MuTh structure, with its angular glass and metal surfaces, is a harmonious fit with the Augarten wall. Both the wall and a small baroque gatehouse have been successfully integrated into the modern building. Once inside, visitors are surprised by the sheer volume of space within the venue. The size and height of the concert hall is a particular revelation, its impressive spatial capacity having been achieved through excavation. The warm colours and materials used in the interior create an inviting atmosphere. Design and construction by: archipel architekten

Café Maximilian

Next to the bright, airy foyer with its bridge-like walkways is Café Maximilian. The café, which is integrated into the baroque gatehouse, is a welcoming space. Here visitors can meet up before a concert, take refreshments during the interval, or round off the evening when the performance ends.

Anything is possible at MuTh. Our contemporary productions of musical theatre delight young and old alike. We present all manner of concerts – orchestral, big band, jazz, the Vienna Boys’ Choir, chamber music, electronica and solo evenings. But no matter what the musical form, the audience members are always seated close to the artists, guaranteeing a truly memorable experience. Well-known actors reveal new aspects of their talent as they perform stage readings. Experts deliver entertaining lectures, passing on knowledge which brings added enjoyment when listening to music. MuTh stages dance events ranging from classical to performative, and the audience can also share in the thrill of live dance competitions. The events on stage are accompanied by displays of contemporary art inside the building, with exhibitions changing regularly.

We look forward to your visit!
