Linz - Music is in the air
2013 Linz beckons once more! The unique city on the Danube is an innovative, contemporary city where culture, nature and economy coexist as a satisfying whole. The European Cultural Capital of 2009 is true to its slogan, "Say Linz. Say Change,". 2013 it is picking up its ears: music is Linz's overarching theme. Musicals, concerts, opera, festivals and a lively music scene combine to form a colourful mosaic. The latest motif is the Linz Opera, which will be celebrating its opening as Europe's most modern opera house in April 2013.
Ludwig van Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote great compositions, Franz Lehár spent some time and electronic music was born here. Linz will be sounding out loud and clear again on 11th April 2013 as it opens the doors to Europe's most modern opera house, the new Linz Opera, designed by the British architect Terry Pawson. The specatcular opening programme will feature names such as Philip Glass and Dennis Russell Davies. From musicals to operas and experimental theater, culture-lovers can eat their heart out - and tuck into tummy delights by celebrity chef Toni Mörwald too!
