〜Schönbrunn Palace Theater〜

A dream palace theater that tells the history of the Habsburgs, who were at their peak of prosperity

Loved by Empress Maria Theresa,

A gorgeous spectacle enjoyed by Antoinette as a child !

Schoenbrunn Palace is located about 5 km west of the center of Vienna. It started as a summer residence of the Habsburg family at the end of the 17th century, and after being expanded and renovated by successive emperors, it was lavishly renovated in the 18th century to become the residence of Empress Maria Theresa (reigned: 1740-80). It became today's gorgeous appearance. Maria Theresa painted the outer wall yellow instead of gold in consideration of her financial situation, so it is characterized by a pale yellow color called "Theresa Yellow". The total number of rooms is 1,441, and the length of both wings is 180m.

Among the Habsburgs who were familiar with theater, Maria Theresia, who highly valued theater from the standpoint of raising the level of education of the people, ordered the construction of a full-fledged theater in the palace. Construction began in 1745 and was completed in 1747. It is one of the oldest existing theaters in Vienna. The Empress loved the theater and told the court theater director, ``We need a spectacle. Said to have revealed The famous anecdote that six-year-old Mozart, who was invited to the palace, proposed to the young Marie Antoinette also happened here. In the 19th century, it served as the headquarters of two Napoleonic reigns, and was also the site of the famous Congress of Vienna, where the famous "Congress dances but does not proceed". It was also in this palace that Franz Joseph I, the last de facto Emperor of Austria, died.

This theater, called 'Teatro Schoenbrunn', has an egg-shaped plan, similar to a typical Italian-style theater with box seats, with a central audience seat surrounded by box seats and galleries, and a dome-shaped roof. A coffered ceiling is painted on the ceiling, and in the sky of the picture are figures symbolizing art, science and wealth, and the goddess Fama with the trumpet praising the empress's fame.

After Maria Theresia's time, only construction work was done to protect the facility, and the appearance of the building remains the same as it was then.

The Schönbrunn Palace and Gardens were registered as a World Heritage Site in 1996, and are now visited by 6.7 million people a year, conveying the splendor and people of the magnificent Habsburg Empire for centuries.

There are two summer traditions in this palace. One is the concert of the Vienna Philharmonic in the baroque garden of the palace. The other is an operetta performed at the Palace Theater. A dream palace where you can enjoy classic Viennese operettas in an 18th-century opulent atmosphere. The Vienna State Opera and the Volksoper are off season in the summer, so the superb Vienna operetta with a gorgeous cast continues to fascinate operetta fans around the world.
