The 29th Film Festival at Vienna’s Rathausplatz

Attention! Programme change for the Film Festival at Rathausplatz:
Presentation of "Man of La Mancha" postponed to 30 August 

(Vienna, 13 August 2019) To mark the 80th birthday of the Grande Dame of the musical, Dagmar Koller, the screening of "Man of La Mancha", scheduled for 26 August 2019, has been postponed to Friday, 30 August 2019.

The birthday girl, who embodied the role of Aldonza in the legendary 1983 production at the Theater an der Wien, will attend the performance at Rathausplatz in person and thus add a further highlight to the finale of the 29th Film Festival. The no less glittering anniversary concert "150 years Vienna State Opera" will now be shown at Rathausplatz on 26 August 2019 instead.
