Entry Description

“This is a wonderful choir, an incredibly good choir. Such stylistic versatility! Truly exceptional!” Christian Thielemann CHORUS recounts the excellence needed in a choir to handle the many musical styles of a repertoire house with such virtuosity and to bring the inspiring individuality of each singer together to form one big, homogenous sound. It is also possible to express the unique situation of the Vienna State Opera Chorus in figures: In 2016 the choir sang in 57 different opera productions. Over more than six months, Lois Lammerhuber accompanied the choir with his camera in their everyday life. In the statements by Director Dominique Meyer and Choir Master Thomas Lang you hear from the experts how a modern choir can work with such precision that the creative energy of the voices is transformed into a magic sound.
