Opera in Alsergrund & the University District

Offering a more intimate experience than the Staatsoper, the Volksoper specialises in operettas, dance performances, musicals and a handful of standard, heavier operas. Standing and impaired-view tickets go for between €3 and €10 and, like many venues, there is a plethora of discounts and reduced tickets for sale 30 minutes before performances. The Volksoper closes for July and August.
