Named after the banks of the Wien River, which once flowed beside it, Vienna's largest theater still retains its past glory. Its Empire Style design, a memorial Papageno gate and scenic surroundings make it a romantic venue to catch some stunning performances. Listen to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra bring Mozart and Beethoven back to life. Among other big names that grace the stage, are Angelika Kirchschlager, Rudolf Buchbinder, and Maurizio Pollini. With Mozart 2006 , the theater celebrates the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth. Music also takes on a humorous note with acts, such as "I Hate Mozart", so there seems to be something for all classical tastes here. Check the web site for upcoming events and tickets.
