Vienna Theatermuseum Tours and Tickets

Vienna's Theatermuseum is found in the delightfully Baroque Lobkowitz Palace, steps away from the Schloss Schönbrunn, and is part of the Kunsthistorischen museums complex. Dating from the late 1690s, the Lobkowitz was one of the first urban palaces built in Vienna after the Imperial Family made the city its main home. It was here that Beethoven premiered his ‘Third Symphony’ and here that many glittering society balls were held over the years.

During its Imperial years, Vienna was packed with theaters, many of which – such as the Burgtheater and the Volkstheater – are still going strong. Being avid collectors of just about anything, the Habsburg emperors began to hoard theater artifacts back in the 18th century. Today these are artfully brought together among the gilt, stucco and delicate ceiling frescoes of the Lobkowitz Palace; an unrivaled collection of hundreds of stage sets, props and costumes from across three centuries as well as more than 70,000 theatrical images dating from the early 20th century onwards. Great names such as Oskar Kokoschka and Pablo Picasso had a hand in designing some of the costumes, there are flyers for concerts played in 1713 and autographs from famous musicians such as Wagner, Strauss, Mähler and of course, Beethoven.

Classical concerts are held in the Eroica Hall and summer sees the cultural action move outside to the courtyard of the Lobkowitz Palace; tickets for these events always sell out fast so book well ahead of time.

Private Tour of the Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts with an Art Historian

Private Tour of the Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts with an Art Historian

We'll begin our tour with the collection's most prized possession -- The Last Judgment by Hieronymus Bosch. The modern viewer is amazed by the inferno in his famous triptych, rather than frightened. It mixes chimeras in the form of half snakes and half eggs, fear of wars and epidemics. And a great deal of the artist's personal frustrations. I invite you to look closely at the details of the painting.  Cranach's The Holy Family, as well as the obe by Jos van Klewe, will reveal the origins of the family portrait genre to us, while the religious paintings of the Quattrocento and Cinquecento art will disclose the rules of making art for religious meditation. And Rubens' The Abduction of Orifia will serve us as an example of what art for sensual pleasure should look like. The most valuable skill for an artist has long been the ability to reveal a complex subject by means of painting. This is why the gallery offers many outstanding examples of "stories" - paintings on biblical or antique subjects, such as Heinrich Füger's Death of Germanicus and Angelo Caroselli's The Suicide of Cato. Together we will try to understand the ideas behind these canvases and to feel how convincing they are for us today.
