War Requiem: information on ticket price refunds

In the course of the discussions since the announcement of Kaddish Requiem „Babyn Jar“ and War Requiem, it has become clear in the last few days that a presentation of both concerts as part of the Wiener Festwochen is currently not feasible.

As emphasized at various points by artistic director Milo Rau, the Kaddish Requiem „Babyn Jar“ represents a central position in the programme of the Wiener Festwochen 2024, which he would like to maintain. After consultation with the SWR Symphonieorchester, the Wiener Festwochen have therefore decided not to present the War Requiem under the direction of Teodor Currentzis. You can find detailed information on the cancellation of War Requiem here.

All tickets already purchased will be cancelled and refunded. This will happen automatically, you do not need to contact us. If we require any additional information from you, we will be in touch.

We kindly ask for your understanding that all these refunds will take some time and that we are doing our best to process them quickly.

All customers who purchased tickets for War Requiem on 12 June or the Requiem supscription, have been contacted by us via email.
