Four years after its premiere at Vienna’s Metropol theatre, the acclaimed ‘Musical Rocks!’ is set to return for a second slice of the Viennese action early next year.
Currently touring Germany, the show will move through Switzerland, then on to Vienna’s Museumsquartier Halle E between 11th - 13th January, before heading back to Germany.
The show is a celebration of stage since the 1960s musical theatre boom, comprising more than twenty hit songs from 18 musicals including We Will Rock You, Grease and Mamma Mia.
It has been described as the rebirth of rock that will keep audiences on their feet and includes all the best rock hits.
For its Austrian leg of the tour, director Dean Welterlen’s cast will include the recent winner of the ORF competition "Musical! Die Show", Vincent Bueno, as well as Markus Neugebauer, who also featured in the ORF programme, before going on to star in Les Miserables, Jekyll & Hyde and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Tickets will cost €33,80 - €73,10 and reservations can already be made online at www.musical-rocks.de, via the ticket hotline on +43 (1) 96096 and from all registered ticket providers.
