MUSIKTHEATER AM VOLKSGARTEN

In 2013, the Landestheater Linz was granted its new, long-awaited location: the Musiktheater am Volksgarten which became the home of the opera/operetta, ballet, the newly established musical section and the Bruckner Orchestra Linz. With the most state-of-the-art opera house in Europe, which was designed by London architect Terry Pawson from Architektur Consult ZT GmbH and Archinauten, as well as the technical, architectural and ecological properties of the new building and its remarkable audience comfort, a new cultural era has dawned. The fascination of theatre begins in the auditorium – whether in the Großer Saal (Main Hall, with up to 1,200 seats), the BlackBox (with up to 270 seats), the BlackBox Lounge (with up to 150 seats), the Orchestersaal (Orchestra Hall, with up to 200 seats) or on the FoyerBühne (Foyer Stage, with various seating arrangements possible).
