In 2012, after "Mozart!" the Korean premieres of the VBW musicals "Elisabeth" and "Rudolf - Affaire Mayerling", 2013 by "Rebecca". In total, the Viennese musicals have been seen by over 660,000 visitors in over 600 performances in Korea. "

I am therefore particularly pleased that three more revivals of VBW musicals are planned in Korea in 2014/15: "Rebecca" (September 6th), "Rudolf - Affaire Mayerling" (October 11th) and "Elisabeth" (summer 2015) will be back in Seoul soon, ”reveals artistic director Christian Struppeck.
