Programme
Overview

"It seemed to me that there was nothing more beautiful in the world than being able to write a work for the theater. Enchanting the audience. Moving them. Making them cheer," said Giacomo Puccini, overwhelmed by Verdi's "Aida," for which he In 1876 he made a special pilgrimage on foot to Pisa, twenty kilometers away, because he could not hear modern operas in his birthplace Lucca. This fascinatingly complex man, who loved hunting and cars, was different from his contemporaries. Also dramaturgically. He said goodbye to the classic heroic material from previous opera works. His protagonists were people from next door, “the great pain in small souls” (Puccini).
Star tenor Jonas Kaufmann succeeds like no other in bringing the moving feelings of ordinary people to the world's stages and in rousing opera audiences and music critics to storms of enthusiasm, in the spirit of Puccini. 2024 marks the 100th anniversary of Puccini's death. With his program “Viva Puccini!”, Jonas Kaufmann dedicates himself to the work of this extraordinary composer. A very personal homage with the most beautiful arias and scenes from his world-famous operas such as "La Bohème", "Tosca" and "Madame Butterfly" - interpreted by the German State Philharmonic under the direction of Jochen Rieder, soprano Maria Agresta and "the greatest tenor of these days” (The Daily Telegraph).

Venue Info

Vienna Konzerthaus - Vienna
Location   Lothringerstraße 20

The Konzerthaus is a concert hall located in Vienna, Austria, which opened in 1913. It is situated in the third district just at the edge of the first district in Vienna. Since it was founded it has always tried to emphasise both traditional and innovative musical styles.

In 1890, the first ideas for a Haus für Musikfeste (House for music festivals) came about. The idea of the new multi-purpose building was to be more interesting to the broader public than the traditional Vienna Musikverein. In addition to the concert hall, the first drawings by Ludwig Baumann for the Olympion included an ice-skating area and a bicycle club. In an attached open air area, 40,000 visitors would be able to attend events. Although the drawings were not accepted, today an ice skating area is situated right next to the building.

The Konzerthaus was finally built between 1911 and 1913. The architects were Fellner & Helmer; the work was done in cooperation with Ludwig Baumann.

The building is about 70×40 meters and had originally three halls, in which there can be simultaneous concerts, since they are sound-proofed. The original Art Nouveau building was partly destroyed during renovations and adaptions, but the building was reconstructed from original sketches in the 1970s. A historic organ was installed in the Konzerthaus by the Austrian firm Rieger in 1913. Between 1997 and 2000 the house was completely renovated.

  • Großer Saal, with 1,840 seats
  • Mozartsaal, with 704 seats
  • Schubertsaal, with 336 seats
  • Berio Saal was added during the latest renovations and seats up to 400 people

The Konzerthaus has the Vienna Symphony, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Wiener Singakademie and the Klangforum Wien in residence. Several subscriptions also include concerts by the Vienna Philharmonic and other organizations.
