MuTh – Music & Theatre
Our mission at MuTh is bringing things together: bridging music and theatre, linking the classical and the avant-garde, and combining openness with variety. Reflecting this aim, MuTh is known not only as the musical home of the Vienna Boys’ Choir; as a concert hall and theatre, it is now firmly established in the cultural landscape of Vienna. Artists and theatre-goers alike have welcomed the concert hall’s superb acoustic, its atmosphere, its modern facilities, and the closeness between performers and audience. We look forward to seeing you here!
Variety is at the heart of our programming:
Musical theatre, for young and old – top-quality contemporary productions
Concerts – a wonderful sound quality, thanks to our excellent acoustic
Choral music – the Vienna Boys’ Choir, Chorus Juventus, and other choirs from around the world
Chamber music – the chance to hear marvellous musicians performing live
Readings – renowned actors demonstrate their lesser-known abilities
Dance – pulsating rhythms, breathtaking choreographies
Competitions & festivals – exciting themes, plus the spirit of competition
Lectures – knowledge shared in an entertaining fashion, to enrich our enjoyment of music
Exhibitions – visual art, presented for our contemplation

The building is a unique ensemble of existing baroque structures (the gatehouse and wall) and modern architecture. At the heart of MuTh is the Concert Hall. Contrasting with the coolness of the glass and metal used in the building’s exterior, the Hall’s interior design features warm materials and bold colours.
The Hall’s magnificent sound – enriched by the use of acoustic panels and specially-designed seating – is especially noteworthy.
A café, shop and a studio complete the overall MuTh experience.
