Nikolaus Habjan, artistic piper
Ines Schüttengruber, piano

Having made audiences roar with laughter and enchanted them in the previous two seasons in Halle E with La Périchole and Wo die wilden Kerle wohnen, Nikolaus Habjan now tells them they can go whistle for the big stage and the entire opera genre (for one night only, of course!) because the director and puppeteer is also well known as a virtuoso whistler. In Austria, this art form was practised by the likes of Baron Jean and Baroness Lips von Lipstrill, and the tradition is now being continued by Habjan, more or less on his own. He has long since made a name for himself as one of the best whistlers in the world. And his speciality is nothing less than the art of coloratura arias. Accompanied by the pianist Ines Schüttengruber he makes a whistle stop in the "Hell".

The event takes place in the "Hölle", a venue in the deepest room in the basement of the Theater an der Wien.
