For the start of the 2017/2018 season, the Wiener Staatsoper has commissioned an entirely new subtitle and information system at the Opera House. The audience has a choice of any one of six languages. Alongside English and German as before, subtitles are also available in Italian, French, Russian and Japanese. These are displayed on eye-friendly high-resolution displays in white lettering on a black background, making them much more easily readable.

Furthermore, visitors have access to an information programme (available in English and German) before all opera and ballet performances and during the intervals. Amongst other things, this information programme includes a brief synopsis of the work, the cast of the respective performance, general information and current information as well as the possibility of registering for our newsletter. Very soon, visitors will also be able to place orders for drinks and snacks during the interval.

These technical and content-innovations imply an enormous quality improvement for national and international guest, from all over the world. After 16 years, it was necessary to replace the original subtitle system installed in September 2001: a total of 2,021 displays were installed in the auditorium in just six weeks.
