CATS - A legend returns
The world-famous show at the Ronacher from autumn 2019
The Vereinigten Bühnen Wien will present the world-famous show in a new version of the original production at the Ronacher from the autumn with its première in September 2019.
A worldwide phenomenon
CATS triumphantly swept the world straight after its première in London, revolutionising the musical world. The legendary play has been recognised by all the major theatre awards, including seven Tony® Awards, one for "Best Musical", as well as three "Olivier Awards", three "Drama Desk Awards", one "Evening Standard Award" and many more.
More than 73 million visitors - and the success story continues
Worldwide, over 73 million people in 30 countries and 16 languages have seen this extraordinary musical. The German-language première ran continuously for seven years in Vienna. And there's no end to the success: just recently, a new CATS production in London and New York thrilled the audience.
Dance, magic, mysticism and Grammy-awarded music
Breathtaking dance, legendary costumes, a magical stage design, Grammy-awarded, electrifying music and the moving world hit "Memory", which has meanwhile been sung by more than 150 world-famous artists (including Barbra Streisand and Céline Dion), make CATS an unforgettable experience. A magical theatre evening for the whole family.
VBW Artistic Director Christian Struppeck: "CATS is still regarded as a milestone in the history of musical theatre today and has fundamentally changed the world of musicals. Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece has inspired people all over the world and with over 73 million visitors in 30 countries to date there is no end to its success in sight. CATS is a phenomenon for me, this production is rightly considered a legend. It means a lot to me that we are finally going to stage this incredible show in Vienna again."
