Festspielhaus St. Pölten


This business is excellent…

  • Austrian environmental mark


The Festspielhaus St. Pölten is one of the most striking theatre buildings of contemporary architecture in Austria and in its 18 years of existence has developed into a leading venue with one of the largest stages for dance and music in the dialogue between tradition and modernity. The Festspielhaus St. Pölten is a seasonal venue that presents a wide-variety of events from dance productions of contemporary ballet to those of international creation, concerts from classical to jazz and world musicx, youth formats, and since 2013 chamber music once again. The programme includes events consisting of guest performances, co-productions and artist residencies.

Since its opening in 1997, the Festspielhaus St. Pölten has been the permanent residence of the Tonkünstler Orchestra, whose concert cycle is one of the main pillars of the Festspielhaus programme. The classical music programme is complemented by international orchestral concerts.
