With a seating capacity close to 1000, the Volkstheater is one of Vienna’s largest theatres. Built in 1889, its interior is suitably grand. While most performances are translations (anything from Woody Allen to Ingmar Bergman to Molière), only German-language shows are produced. Tickets range from €11 (balcony) to €50 (stalls). Students can buy unsold tickets for €4.60 one hour before performances start. Advanced bookings are necessary, especially for the most popular performances.
