Volksoper Wien

Lotte de Beer will remain Artistic Director of the Volksoper Wien beyond her current contract. This was announced today by Andrea Mayer, State Secretary for Art and Culture. De Beer's second term of office begins with the 2027/28 season and runs until 2032.

"Lotte de Beer has given the Volksoper a new look since she took office - and by that I don't just mean the façade of the house, but also the diverse and artistically high-quality programme," said Andrea Mayer, State Secretary for Arts and Culture, commenting on the extension. 

"The Volksoper Wien is a unique venue in the international theatre landscape. I consider it a privilege to build bridges at this wonderful theatre between artistic heritage and renewal, between our diverse audiences with their different views and ways of thinking and between nostalgia and utopia. At the Volksoper Wien - this most versatile of all theatres - we can laugh, cry, dream, reflect and search for what unites us, evening after evening," says current and future director Lotte de Beer. 

 "The Volksoper Wien will soon be concluding the most successful season in the theatre's history. Lotte de Beer is fully committed to her vision of opening up the opera house to as many people as possible. She achieves this with a great love of theatre, perfect craftsmanship and the art of enchanting the audience time and time again. I look forward to continuing her work," says Christian Kircher, Managing Director of Bundestheater-Holding.
