4th Floor – virto|stage

Clear the stage for your personal music theatre!

virto|stage allows you to direct your very own personal music and opera experience. Storyline, stage design and music are in your hands. Your movements and gestures bring about your own original multimedia opera.

virto|stage is a virtual stage resembling an opera house. Surrounded by loges and tiers you find yourself in the midst of an opera event. Two stages feature two distinct topics.

zoo concert has been specifically created for our young visitors and takes them on a musical adventure trip. Curious explorers are in for an exciting play-along fairy tale.

zeitperlen lets you experience how to merge music, vocals and vision in a unique way: a multimedia opera from the perspective of its actors – you are essential in its production.

ZEITPERLEN
A multi-media opera and interactive music experience.

With zeitperlen virto|stage media artist Johannes Deutsch, soprano Natalia Ushakova, the Vienna Philharmonic, the composers Nick & Clemens Prokop and interaction designer Stefan Schilcher make it possible to experience the MULTIDIMENSIONAL merging of MUSIC, CHANT and VISION first-hand: OPERA from the perspective of actors. Human gestures turn into dramaturgical instruments defining storyline and degree of audio-visual complexity – the recipient becomes the interpreter.
Johannes Deutsch uses themes from Don Giovanni, The Flying Dutchman and Ovid’s Metamorphoses as a creative and contextual approach to a series of intensively edited photographic sceneries.

ZOO CONCERT
The magical zoo is open!

The heart-warming story, based on Marko Simsa’s children’s book, is brought to new life on the interactive virto|stage. The musical fairy tale, specifically created for our young visitors, takes them on an adventurous discovery journey.

It’s bedtime for Rosalie, but she is not tired at all. When she converts her bed into a zoo, all the stuffed animals in her room come along for the ride! The penguin waddles along the edge of the bed, the elephant exaltedly trumpets the elephant- trumpet-fanfare and the frog claps along while croaking the frog-polka. Cow and pig are in love with each other and a cheeky parrot is in, too, on this musical mega event in Rosalie’s bedroom. With virto|stage you can help bring the endearing tale to new life!
