Probably the most famous love story in the world in Vincenzo Bellini's bel canto version

Romeo has killed Juliet's brother, Tebaldo is to take revenge on him and marry Juliet. In a close-up of the last twenty-four hours, composer and librettist plumb the emotional world of their characters in their bel canto version of the world's most famous love story. With emotionally gripping melodies, combined in an elegiac-melancholic maelstrom and uninterrupted by any secret happiness of love, Bellini leads his protagonists to an unforgiving but poignant operatic finale in his sixth opera, which premiered in 1830 at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice.
Performances until 8 July 2021 | Großer Saal Musiktheater


Dance evening by Urs Dietrich

Credo is the title of the new dance piece by Urs Dietrich, who is guesting at our theatre at the invitation of dance director Mei Hong Lin. The Swiss choreographer sends the dancers on a journey, a search for knowledge, for their own credo. A field of tension between faith and doubt is explored and the question is asked: how free is or how free can man be?
Performanes until 10 June 2021 | BlackBox Musiktheater


Musical by Or Matias based on the report by Ron Jones

The Wave is based on the famous 1967 experiment by teacher Ron Jones, who transformed an American high school class into a kind of fascist movement within a few days. When things get out of control and the structures that have been rehearsed show more and more totalitarian traits, the teacher wants to stop the experiment - but the members of "The Wave" oppose him. - The Broadway-experienced Or Matias wrote The Wave as a commissioned work for the Landestheater Linz. In collaboration with the Musik und Kunst (MuK) Privatuniversität der Stadt Wien.
Performances until 13 June 2021 | Schauspielhaus


Great emotions on the 150th birthday of Franz Lehár

On the occasion of Franz Lehár's 150th birthday, the Landestheater is presenting a new production of this most successful Lehár-Tauber operetta, which tells of the complex but passionate love affair between the Chinese prince Sou-Chong and the young Viennese woman Lisa. Director Andreas Beuermann makes a Viennese museum in the year of the premiere the setting for his interpretation and links the history of its creation and the work by placing the singing star Richard Tauber as the interpreter of Prince Sou-Chong at the centre of Lisa's passion for love. A hit! Definitely watch it! Upper Austrian Volksblatt

Our musical ensemble celebrates its longed-for return to the stage with Jason Robert Brown's story

"The new normal" - isn't that just cloaking euphemism for the existential crisis we find ourselves in? Jason Robert Brown's songs give us insights into the inner world of people at turning points in their lives. And perhaps also help for those of us who are in a similar situation. - The strong-voiced ten-member musical ensemble presents Brown's great songs in a stage and video concept by Simon Eichenberger that builds on his "oneliners": Drawings in a Single Stroke.
Performances until July 9 2021 | Großer Saal Musiktheater
