For four whole months the Vienna State Opera will be serving the very best that the genre has to offer in its very own open air festival. In 2012 selected performances will be screened live a on a 50 square meter LED video wall on Herbert-von-Karajan-Platz directly adjacent to the opera house in April, May, June and September.
Performances are subtitled, and information about the piece, the performers, the State Opera and its work is provided before the concert starts and during the intervals. The Oper live am Platz season aims to take the work of this Viennese institution to an even wider public and in doing so encourage more people to attend performances at the Staatsoper.
