Press Reviews

Everybody talks about SCHIKANEDER
"Quality […] you might otherwise find only in New York on Broadway or in London’s West End.”

Salzburger Nachrichten
“A well-made play.”

“Struppeck’s musical is highly impressive.”

“‘Schikaneder’ proves that Christian Struppeck, the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien’s Artistic Director of Musicals, is a master of his craft.”

Kleine Zeitung
“Nothing stands in the way of becoming a worldwide hit!”

Der Standard
“Veteran director Trevor Nunn’s fast-paced staging exhibits both craft and virtuosity.”

Kronen Zeitung
“Star director Trevor Nunn (‘Cats, ‘Les Miserables’, Royal Shakespeare Company) is a theatrical wizard who knows how to craft thrilling stage moments. He sends his characters racing through their scenes and gives them clear contours.”

Tiroler Tageszeitung
“Standing ovations for the opulent baroque musical ‘Schikaneder’ at Vienna’s Raimund Theater.”

“Candles, fantastic costumes, baroque stage machinery, fire, pyramids and a tethered hot air balloon invoke Schikaneder’s theatrical magic and are a big factor in this new musical’s success.”
