Review: ELISABETH IN CONCERT at Schönbrunn Castle

What did our critic think of ELISABETH IN CONCERT at Schönbrunn Castle? The dramatically touching story about Austria's famous Empress Elisabeth is back for a three-night Open Air Concert in Schönbrunn's grand forecourt.


Ready for a new year full of splendid shows and numerous Opening Nights. Here is my short list of some of this year's recommendable shows you can't miss.

Feature: Best Theatre of 2022 For Austria & Germany

Let's call it a year. Recovering from the pandemic episode, home alone, only connected via Video Calls, (more or less) entertained by living room concerts instead of spending a night out at the theatre, we got the opportunity to enjoy various shows over Austria and Germany. We returned to the theatre, enjoying the atmosphere, the smell, and everything a night out offers.

First Look: Willemijn Verkaik Returns to the Stage in REBECCA the Musical in Vienna

BroadwayWorld has a first look at Rebecca the Musical in Vienna at the Raimund Theater. Known for being 'the two most successful German-language musical authors,'  Michael Kunze & Sylvester Levay's Rebecca has already captivated more than 2 million people worldwide in 12 countries and 10 languages.

Review: REBECCA THE MUSICAL at Raimund Theatre

REBECCA, the musical about love and obsession reaching from beyond the grave, is back! Daphne Du Maurier's novel has been adapted several times successfully for stage and screen, like Alfred Hitchcock's Academy-Awarded Version or the late Netflix Adaption with Lily James and Armie Hammer. Silvester Levay (Music) and Michael Kunze (Book and Lyrics) brought up a Musical Version of Du Maurier's gothic thriller back in 2006.


What did our critic think of THE GRAND SHOW at QUERRY ST.MARGARETHEN?


After last year's success, the star-studded Musical concert is back in the picturesque quarry.

Review: MUSICAL MOMENTS at Theater In The Park

Mark Seibert was playing an open air concert last Sunday at the Theatre in the Park in Vienna. He is one of the most – if not the most - acclaimed musical singer with ongoing sold-out concerts in Germany and Austria. In this concert, Mark was reflecting on his career. He chose songs which could be headlined with “Songs of unanswered love” or “Songs of fallen heroes” which he used to play a lot in the past. Mark always shows great confidence in singing these emotional or powerful songs.


ELISABETH, VBW's most successful show, is back for a three-night-only Concert at Vienna's stunning Schönbrunn Castle, starting performances on July 30. This year's Empress will be Maya Hakvoort, who has played ELISABETH in Vienna and worldwide. She boosted her career back in the days when she stepped into the role at the famous Theater an der Wien. To shorten the waiting, the VBW released a video with Hakvoort and the excellent VBW Musical Orchestra, conducted by the show's composer Silvester Levay singing the show's Hit Song 'Ich gehör nur mir.' It's been too long since we got the chance to enjoy the dramatic story in the breathtaking scenery, but now one of the most significant summer events is just around the corner, and we are more than interested to see this year's Concert Cast on stage.

Review: ELISABETH IN CONCERT at Schönbrunn Palace

What did our critic think of ELISABETH IN CONCERT at SCHÖNBRUNN PALACE? After the massive success in 2019, ELISABETH, the Musical about Austria's famous empress, is back at Schönbrunn Palace for a three-night-only run. You might never witness a concert in such a unique location perfect for one if not the most successful Austrian musical, written by Michael Kunze (book and lyrics) and Silvester Levay (music). The concert feels like a celebration of the show's unbroken success. Since opening night in 1992, ELISABETH has become a global phenomenon. More than twelve million people have seen the story about Elisabeth's tragic life and death. A Musical National treasure, history Made In Austria.

BWW Previews: REBECCA at Raimund Theater

REBECCA finally returns to the Raimund Theater! Michael Kunze & Sylvester Levay ('Elisabeth,' 'Mozart!') have created another magnificent masterpiece that has already captivated more than 2 million visitors* worldwide in twelve countries and ten languages. The spectacular production, based on the world-famous novel by Daphne du Maurier, is coming back to Vienna this September. Francesca Zambello (Director of Original Production) is recreating the show for the revival run with Simon Eichenberg (Choreography) and Peter J. Davison. ( Set Design)

BWW Preview: Austrian Productions to Look Forward in 2022

Heading into the 2022 theatre season, Austria has a wealth of productions that deserve your attention. In this feature, I break down some of the shows that I will definitely be getting tickets to see. From Saigon to Rydell High, a ton of shows to choose from, so go out there and get your tickets before they're gone!


The Raimund Theater is open again, more beautiful than ever before. After almost 2 years of refurbishment, the house is ready to welcome back its audience. There might be no better way to open a house with a splendid gala. A journey through the theatre's history from operetta to the golden area of musicals with familiar faces on stage. VBW's very own artistic director, Christian Struppeck, the Master of the house together with Musical Diva Ana Milva Gomes acted as the hosts of the gala. The stage has been home to many great actors from past and present. Many shows have been developed in the house in Viennas 6th district, some of them went down as the greatest musicals in Austrian musical history. Being part of the Reopening from such a historical and magical place is like a once-in-a-lifetime event. Celebrities together with musical theatre lovers followed Struppeck's invitation to the Grand Reopening.


The answer is yes but not a song of an angry voice, it's full of joy and happiness. St. Margarethen, usually home for huge summer Opera Open Air productions, welcomed a Musical Star Ensemble for a Best Of Concert. St. Margarethen's quarry is located close to the famous Neusiedler See, the largest endorheic sea in central Europe, everything you need for a perfect day/night out.

The Virus we all have been talking about for quite some time is still with us but nevertheless, our country and everything we missed so dear is coming back. Enough with all those cancellations and postponed opening dates, we are more than ready ( and mostly vaccinated) to get entertained.

After numerous streaming events, here is one we have all been waiting for since Covid-19 closed all our theatres.

BWW Review: MARK SEIBERT - MUSICALS at Ebertbad (Oberhausen)

After his studio concert Mark Seibert decided to do a live streaming concert at the Ebertbad (Oberhausen) on Valentine’s Day, which was produced by SOUND OF MUSIC and for which he invited Marle Martens and Thomas Holer. Both guests have been working with Mark Seibert in many shows. This is why they were putting the highlights of ELISABETH, DANCE OF THE VAPMIRES and MOZART together in medleys. Although none of these shows  have made it across the pond so far (DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES failed in 2003 due to different reasons), all songs enjoy great popularity in Germany and Austria.

2020 wasn't what we expected it to be but let`s walk on full of hope and faith, 2021 should be a much better one.

On the 10th of August, the likes of Ana Milva Gomes, Maya Hakvoort, Marjan Shaki, Missy May, Tertia Botha, Mark Seibert, Lukas Perman, Yngve-Gasoy Romdal, and Jan Ammann are going to set the stage on fire.

The quarry is always worth a trip and with this star-picked Cast it should definitely be on your 2021 bucket list. If you are still looking for a christmas present, grab some tickets and take a trip to St. Margarethen.
