Fodor's Expert Review Kongress- und Theaterhaus
A number of events grace the imperial interiors of the Kongress- und Theaterhaus each season. Musical performances are held throughout the year, including Advent concerts. The biggest draw is the summer Lehár Festival. Operetta and classic musical theater lovers flock to Bad Ischl during July and August for favorite standards like The Merry Widow and My Fair Lady. Tickets are sold online, at local tourist offices, and on-site. Pre-sales for the upcoming season begin in October.
