Volkstheater

Famed as a venue able to combine classic and modern drama with popular Viennese plays, the Volkstheater (People’s Theatre) was, for many years, a staging post for directors and actors on their way from the provincial theatres to the estimable Burgtheater. Today, classic and modern, or even experimental drama dominate the repertoire. The Volkstheater presents many plays for the first time, or for the first time in the German language. The Volkstheater was built in 1889 by the Austrian architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer. They employed the latest in theatre technology, including electric lighting throughout, and many theatre designers later copied their work. The auditorium, with more than 1,000 seats, is one of the largest in a theatre devoted to German-language drama, and is a great example of Viennese fin-de-si?cle architecture. In front of the theatre stands a statue (1898) of the dramatist Ferdinand Raimund.
