Ten years after The Witches of Eastwick, the first premiere of the new Linz Musical Ensemble, we look back on more than 45 musical premieres, including 4 world premieres, 9 German-language and 5 Austrian premieres, 23 awards at various musical theater prizes, 29 ensemble and 15 team members. We relive the most beautiful moments, reminisce and share anecdotes, and offer insights into what the future might bring. And we do so together with the Bruckner Orchestra, the Linz Landestheater Chorus and surprise guests who are eager to celebrate with us.

The opening of the new Linz Music Theater in April 2013 also marked the beginning of the Linz musical success story. Artistic director Rainer Mennicken hired Matthias Davids to establish a musical division at the Landestheater in addition to opera, dance, drama and the Young Theater. On April 14, 2013, one day after the opening premiere of Traces of the Lost, the Witches of Eastwick flew through the new Great Hall, and again one day later, the new ensemble's Seven in Heaven introduced itself in the BlackBox Lounge. Ten years later, the musical ensemble has grown to twelve members, and the Linz musical has become an institution on the German-language theater scene. Celebrate with us!
