    Please change the status of Raimund Theater to open. We were captivated with Miss Saigon and a helicopter scene brings the audience to tears

    We went in the last 30 years almost twice a year to Vienna, and never heard before about this lovely Kammeroper. This is basically for the young talents of the Theater an der Wien. We had a very good Candide, with very good voices. And the theater itself is nice.

    Incredibly talented and professional musicians. A fabulous way to experience something so classically Viennese.

    Kalrskirche is baroque magnificence spoilt by scaffolding supporting internal money making lift to visit the frieze. 4 Seasons concert was great, though right at the back in Tier 3 seats, we could hear perfectly and still see soloists. Performance is abut 1:10 and was padded out with a baroque counter-trenor singing some extremely obscure music. Still well worth the effort.

    More comfort and better vew to the musicians should be a plus. The sensation of cold coming from the aeration was also not comfortable.

    Visited whilst on a city break having reserved in advance. Typical hard rock menu and cooked exactly how you would expect from a Hard Rock , the staff were, as always, friendly, helpful & efficient. Memorabilia was a little sparse because of the layout but liked the big signature chairs! If you choose to come to a Hard Rock then this is exactly what you would expect - no real Vienna or Austrian cultural stamp on it at all.

    I have listened to many recordings of Mozart's Requiem, but this performance of a small group of musicians (12 strings; 8 winds/brass; 1 timpani; 13 singers + 4 soloist singers + conductor) revealed to me new aspects of how well the different voices of the orchestra and choir/soloists are integrated and support each other. Less is really more. Here, location is everything, and Karlskirche and its acoustics was a key part of the performance. The acoustics at many times made me look up toward the dome, especially at the end of movements. Mozart's orchestration as to when he used the timpani or not, seeing up-close how the singers and instrumentalists support each other or counterbalance each other was inspiring. Period instruments were appreciated - especially cellists playing without endpin, period trombone, horn, etc. This performance made me fall in love again with the Requiem but in a completely different way. It felt like going back in time and getting a glimpse as to how this piece was performed in the day. Thank you for such an amazing experience!

    We enjoyed the concert in the orangery, the setting was beautiful and the orchestra were great. We had dinner at the palace restaurant beforehand but not part of the set package so that we could eat outside and from the a la carte menu.
    The concert was slightly spoilt by other members of the audience taking photos on their phones and some even filming parts of the concert throughout. There was an announcement at the start of the concert telling people not to do this but some people still did. One girl on our row had her phone in the air filming for a good few minutes. She also took photos with the flash on. It annoyed the girl next to her so much that she felt she had to move. I imagine it also to be very annoying for the people behind. The staff did nothing about this. I suggest making the announcement clearer at the beginning of the concert that filming/photography/phones are prohibited and also having staff watching for this and telling people who persist to stop.

    Enjoyed it thoroughly. Tickets were not cheap but I brought the cheapest one where you stand and watch the opera. Still got a good view but a bit cramped. The music and the rest of the show was amazing. Must try when in Vienna.

    Bought a €12 ticket for Sunday mass. Lovely singing and great to exprience the famous choir live. The mass is in German so for non-German speakers, you only go to listen to the choir. The Hopburg Chapel where the service was held is a fitting setting.

    We bought tickets for this evening concert from our cruise ship, and we were somewhat disappointed. The venue was smaller than expected, the orchestra had fewer members than expected and there were dancers that we didn’t expect at all.

    The soloists were good, but the whole show was tired.

    The only thing that exceeded the music, was the building. While this may not have been classic Mozart or Strauss, both would have enjoyed the presentations. If you are a purist, I still think you will enjoy this.

    We had docked into Vienna on the 2nd .day of our cruise. We were tired, jet lagged and sleepy that evening and not being great fans of classical music, wondered whether we should go for the concert that had been arranged for us. But this was Vienna - the capital city of classical music and it would be a sin not to attend at least one concert during our visit to this city. And in the future if were to think back we would certainly not forgive ourselves and would regret passing up this opportunity. I was yawning several times as we got onto the bus. and Angie wondered whether I would stay awake. The opulence and beauty of the concert hall in the Palais Eschenback jolted me awake. The members of the orchestra soon entered and the programme started on time. It was BEAUTIFUL. The acoustics in the hall was perfect. Perhaps the organizers knew that the audience was not a sophisticated one and chose popular numbers - Voices of Spring, Blue Danube, the Bat and Turkish March were superbly presented. I was wide awake and wanting to hear more. We had a soprano and a baritone performing individually and then together ; a ballerina and her partner performed 2 dancers. Some humor was also weaved into the performance. Finally for one song audience participation was encouraged - we were taught how to keep time by clapping as the orchestra performed. And then the beautiful ballerina came down to the audience to coax someone to dance a waltz with her - 2 elderly gentleman chickened out. Then she eyed me ( by this time Angie was upset that no one wanted to dance with this nice girl and had planned to push me to volunteer ) - must say I felt nervous ; the last time I had danced was more 20 years ago , but having got the blessings of my wife and holding hands with this pretty girl, my legs moved and the audience loved it - we got a good round of applause. It was a perfect evening spent well - I am so glad we attended. Everyone enjoyed the show and 2 encores were requested of the orchestra who obliged us.
