Music and theatre
Vienna as the world capital of music – to Haydn's lifetime this was not yet the case. Vienna lured as a beautiful and prosperous royal residence. From a metropolis but could not be the case. However, this status changed dramatically in the course of the 19th century and the city not only gained in importance, but also in cultural diversity.
Literary writers such as Hugo von Hofmannsthal wrote here writings and pushed the theater almost into the modern era while Schoenberg and his students radically changed the musical heritage of the first Viennese school. In Vienna not only the old masters were worshiped, but also the avant-garde was developed.
Today's art and culture scene therefore looks back on a long colorful history of cultural workers in Vienna. Many of today's venues for music and stage were the artistic home of great names such as Mahler and Strauss. And even today, many tourists are drawn to the city with the desire to go to the Vienna Opera, to listen to the Philharmonic or to be the "castle" in the Austrian National Theater. An overview of the many new and old stages can be found here.
