Opera, operetta, and ballet are performed at the Volksoper, outside the city center at Währingerstrasse and Währinger Gürtel. Prices here are significantly lower than at the Staatsoper, and performances can be every bit as rewarding. This theater has a packed calendar, with offerings ranging from the grandest opera, such as Mozart's Don Giovanni, to an array of Viennese operettas, including Johann Strauss's Die Fledermaus, to Broadway musicals (Hello, Dolly! was recently added to the repertoire). Most operas are sung in German. The opera house is at the third stop on streetcar Nos. 41, 42, or 43, which run from Schottentor, U2, on the Ring.
