Max Simonischek, Vienna Reed Quintet and Christopher Hinterhuber

Christopher Hinterhuber & friends in the MuTh


"It should not be called Bach but Meer," Ludwig van Beethoven remarked admiringly. In fact, Bach's music is not only as deep as a whole ocean in the musical sense, but it is also enormously multi-layered, unfathomable, touching. Many of these adjectives also apply to the classic "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville from 1851. His drama takes place mainly at sea. The narrative backbone of the novel is the fateful voyage of the whaling ship Pequod. Captain Ahab hunts with blind hatred the white sperm whale Moby Dick, who has torn off his leg.

Works by Johann Sebastian Bach, including from Die Kunst der Fuge BWV 1080, Brandenburgisches Konzert Nr. 5 in D major, BWV 1050

Musik & Theater Muth

Vienna‘s new venue for music and theatre – the Vienna Boys’ Choir Concert Hall in the Augarten – opens in December 2012!

MuTh is located in Vienna´s Augarten park, nor far from Augarten Palace where the choir boys leave and rehearse.

An exciting new venue has sprung up in the heart of Vienna, a place with a focus on young people where music and theatre meet.
The new stage is equipped to the highest standards, and the auditorium has seating for 400 people. The stage measures 12 x 9 metres. It has an optimally designed orchestra pit and the finest acoustic in the city
Here in this new hotspot for music and theatre you can experience the Vienna Boys’ Choir performing live, rock and jazz concerts, drama, and many more cultural events.

Concert hall capacity: 400
Stage: 12 x 9 m
Orchestra pit: 12 x 3.5 m
Wheelchair accessible, 4 wheelchair spaces
Architects: archipel architektur+kommunikation

The building is a unique ensemble of existing baroque structures (the gatehouse and wall) and modern architecture. At the heart of MuTh is the new Concert Hall. Contrasting with the coolness of the glass and metal used in the exterior of the new construction, warm materials and strong colours are used in the Hall. The magnificent ambient sound – enriched through the use of acoustic panels and special seating – is particularly noteworthy.

A café, shop and a seminar room complete the overall MuTh experience.
