Since the merger on 1 September 2005, the Wiener Staatsoper ballet company has been an independent consortium of the Vienna State Opera and Volksoper Wien under joint artistic and commercial direction.
Each season, the ballet company and its 100 members give approx. 90 full-night ballet and dance performances at the Vienna State Opera and Volksoper Wien, with an attendance of some 150,000 altogether. The company also performs ballet scenes at both opera houses and gives regular guest performances abroad.
