Wiener Sängerknaben Classical

The Choir has been touring - oh, at least since the late 1400s, as part of the Chapel Imperial. As Vienna Boys Choir, the boys have been On the Road since 1926, singing close to 30,000 concerts on more than 1000 tours.

A typical Vienna Boys Choir performance is a perfect blend of motets and lieder, world music, waltzes, polkas, and pop – a format which is known and loved by millions around the world. For the duration of a concert, we will take you on a holiday - in music.

The concert on 15 February marks the start of a new series at Muth - Wiener Sängerknaben Classical - recreating that special tour feeling in Vienna: And we are On the Road again . . .


Children's Opera @ MuTh

Gerald Wirth's "The Journey of the Little Prince"
"You can only see properly with your heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes.“ The little Prince has to visit a number of planets and meet a string of characters with very different opinions before reaching this insight. Gerald Wirth composed his opera based on the famous book by Antoine de Saint-Exupérys in 1997; in 2018, he added the role of a narrator for a new production at MuTh, directed by Philipp M. Krenn.

Canadian tenor Michael Schade sings the narrator, choirboy Paul sings the title role. In addition to the boys' choir, girls and boys from the Choir's primary school, the girls' choir, and the Choir's Senior High School take to the stage in this production.
