From the 1st of September to the 7th of October 2012 a musical on Klimt will be shown in Vienna. The musical covers the life of Austria’s most famous painter Gustav Klimt. It deals with his early works, his years of success, his dramatic strokes of fate and his love and muse Emilie Flöge. Mostly it will be underlined by excellent rock music.
On Wednesdays the performances will be held in English. They start at 7:30pm and take place at Künstlerhaus Wien
Tickets are available between 29,50€ and 69,50€ and can be purchased here.
To reach Künstlerhaus from our Boutiquehotel Stadthalle, take the underground U3 to Stephansplatz, change to U1 to Karlsplatz, take the exit “Akademiestraße-Künstlerhaus”.
Last Saturday we celebrated Gustav Klimt’s 150th birthday. On this occasion all the guests of Boutiquehotel Stadthalle received a complimentary glass of jam, decorated with one of Klimt’s paintings!
Currently there are a lot of exhibitions to celebrate Gustav Klimt:
Leopold Museum: “Klimt: up close and personal”
Belvedere: Belvedere hosts the largest Klimt collection worldwide.
Arts-History Museum: For the first time paintings of the young Klimt can be looked at from the Klimt bridge in 12 meters height.
