Vienna is still selling 20% fewer ticketsNews
A survey of Vienna theatres shows they are operating at 20 percent pre-Covid capacity.
The State Opera has risen to 90%, but that’s nine points lower than before with the influx of Asian tourists.
Stephan Pauly, director of the Musikverein, says, ‘for many concerts we are noticeably below the occupancy rates before Corona. For some concerts we sell 20 percent fewer tickets.’
Konzerthaus director Matthias Naske: ‘Sales in spring 2022 have increased significantly, but are far from pre-pandemic dimensions.’
The Theater an der Wien is running at 83 percent.
