Children’s workshops

Not only can our young audiences enjoy music theatre from the comfort of a red auditorium seat – they can also experience music theatre themselves, through play, singing and handicrafts! Opera and ballet are brought to life for children by numerous Volksoper artistes and staff members, as well as the exciting and varied world of the orchestra and its many instruments. A unique opportunity for getting close to the world of the theatre!

These workshops are offered in German only.

Children’s quiz

At our “children’s quiz” performances, each child in the audience is given a specially designed synopsis and a colourful question sheet about what is happening on stage. To encourage them to participate, all children who hand in their question sheet at the box office in the foyer during the interval will get a sweet “surprise”, and can take part in a prize draw with Marabu creative sets to be won.

The question sheets are available in German only.


At the Volksoper, even the smallest are well seated!

Together with ÖBB, the Volksoper offers cushions for our smallest audience members.

Specially made cushions are available at the public service point by the cloakrooms, and can be borrowed free of charge.
