About the Matinee

The introductory matinees before opera premieres, hosted by State Opera Director Bogdan Roščić, have become a big hit with audiences in recent years. In around 90 minutes, the current new production is presented, there are discussions with the artists of the premiere and musical contributions. Opera newcomers in particular can gain an insight into a production and get to know the respective work and the Staatsoper production in advance on a Sunday morning. This time it is Giacomo Puccini's masterpiece Il trittico, consisting of the three operas Il tabarro, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi, which has not been performed as a trilogy in the Haus am Ring for more than 40 years. Bogdan Roščić will be joined on the podium by music director Philippe Jordan, director Tatjana Gürbaca, Eleonora Buratto, Ambrogio Maestri, Serena Sáenz and Bogdan Volkov.


The introductory matinee is free of charge for subscribers, newsletter recipients, the U27 audience and members of the Official Circle of Friends of the Vienna State Opera.


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).
