CATS is finally back at the Ronacher from May 26, 2021


The time has finally come – the world famous musical CATS returns to the Ronacher from May 26, 2021! After a break due to COVID-19, Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece can be seen again every day except Mondays at the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien.

After record advance sales and completely sold-out performances, the show had to stop several times due to the Corona pandemic. Nevertheless, CATS has already been extended twice due to high demand and can now be seen at the Ronacher until June 27, 2021 and then again from September 11, 2021 for a third season.

Christian Struppeck, Artistic Direction Raimund Theater & Ronacher: "After the COVID-19-related break from playing, CATS is finally returning to the Ronacher. It is important that art and culture as fundamental elements of our society can finally be experienced live again. Our safety concepts have been worked out and we cannot wait to welcome our audience back and offer them a magical theater experience."
