Programme books & subtitles

The programme books for all performances of the WIener Staatsoper, with the exception of premieres, are available in advance.

They can be found at the information desk of the Bundestheater (Operngasse 2, 1010 Vienna), at the Information Office of the WIener Staatsoper (Hanuschgasse 3, 1010 Vienna), as well as in the e-shop of the Wiener Staatsoper. A voucher for the nightly cast list is issued with each program. It is redeemable prior to the performance.

When buying tickets online

, you can also buy a programme book and receive a voucher which is redeemable prior to the performance.


Every seat and standing room space in the auditorium of the Vienna State Opera has a small, inconspicuous screen that gives visitors the option of following the libretto in either German or English translation. Those who only wish to see the subtitles now and then or not at all naturally have the option of pressing a button to switch the screen off or on.
