Rigoletto: Opera in the Crypt
About the Event
Experience Verdi's masterpiece 'Rigoletto' as an exciting, captivating opera chamber play with Florian Pejrimovsky in the title role. The internationally renowned artists perform the minimally shortened work without distance directly before and between their audiences.
With exquisite, original piano accompaniment, 'Rigoletto' sounds as Giuseppe Verdi himself first presented his work — pure, direct and intense. The fascinating closeness to the artists creates an exchange of energy that touches both sides. To experience how powerful and intense the singers show their art directly in front of you leaves deep, unforgettable impressions.
The old vaults of the crypt provide the ideal setting.
Established as the smallest opera theatre in Austria, the performances in the KRYPTA impress with their intensity, high quality and, of course, the unusual venue. Situated deep below St. Peter's Church in Vienna, the intimate hall offers a personal experience like no other theatre.
The KRYPTA is pleasantly tempered at any time of the year.
