Fodor's Review

Opera, operetta, and ballet are performed at the Volksoper, just on the outer edge of the Innere Stadt 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 (Guys and Dolls a recent addition to the repertoire). Most operas and musicals 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.
