About the Production

The Magic Flute for children

Two performances that always take place the day after the Opera Ball and have now introduced generations of young visitors to the world of musical theater. Seven thousand children from all over Austria experience a shortened, approximately one-hour performance of Mozart's opera in the festive ballroom, in which the character of Papageno leads the audience through the performance. The atmosphere on this afternoon is unique: the children follow the story of Tamino and Pamina with a curiosity and fascination that perhaps no other performance at the State Opera can match. The enchanted animals are admired a thousand times over, Mozart's music is listened to, the house is filled with children's laughter and spontaneous applause. The audience witnesses how the "Wunder Theater" unfolds its magical power and casts a spell over the young audience. Members of the Vienna State Opera ensemble sing and play, accompanied by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, who present their instruments as part of this children's opera.

The Vienna State Opera would like to thank the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research for its support.

Tickets for our standing room can be purchased online or at the Bundestheater box office from 10 am on the day of the performance. BundestheaterCard holders can book standing room tickets online the day before the performance.

In addition, a fixed contingent of standing room tickets is available for regular evening performances from 80 minutes before the start of the performance at our standing room box office (Operngasse entrance).

Our operas are sung in the original languages - these vary depending on the work.

At each seat, subtitles in different languages can be switched on or off via a separate subtitle screen. In addition to the original language of the opera, you can choose from up to eight languages: German, English, Italian, French, Russian, Japanese, Spanish, Chinese (Mandarin).

In the event of a change of performance, you can of course return or exchange your tickets.

As changes to the cast cannot be ruled out due to illnesses or other hindrances of artists, there is no entitlement to a refund of the ticket price or exchange in this case.

Tickets cannot be returned or exchanged if you are not admitted to the auditorium due to being late (even after the interval).
