We Are Musical
The name Vereinigte Bühnen Wien (VBW) is synonymous with great musical theatre. Whether from Austria or abroad, our audiences at the Ronacher and the Raimund Theater enjoy Austrian and European German-language premieres of hit international musicals. We attract the most talented practitioners in the international musical scene – directors, choreographers, set designers, composers and librettists – to create in-house productions of the highest quality, accompanied as always by our renowned 80-piece VBW orchestra.
VBW productions have been delighting audiences for over 50 years with their quality and distinctiveness. To make sure this continues, we are constantly developing new ideas to attract our audiences of tomorrow – children, young people and non-traditional theatre-goers.
Since 1996, VBW musicals have been exported to 21 countries, from Finland to Japan, a radius of operation that demonstrates the economic significance of international licensing. So far, over 30 million visitors have seen a VBW production in Vienna or abroad. Many of them are members of our large international musical community, to whom we dedicate our credo:
Musicals are in our blood, the love of musicals is in our hearts and we are passionate about applying our know-how and years of expertise to create great musical theatre.
WE ARE MUSICALS.
