Minister of Culture Werner Kogler assumes that the Vienna New Year’s Concert will take place in 2021 – but without an audience.
If Salzburg can play against Bayern Munich in the empty stadium, the traditional Vienna New Year’s concert must also be possible, he said in the “Tiroler Tageszeitung” on Saturday. “Well I think there will be a New Year’s concert, but I’m afraid without an audience.” The Philharmonic recently emphasized that if necessary, they would also play in the empty Wiener Musikverein.
In an interview, Minister of Culture Kogler left it open when cultural institutions such as cinemas, theaters or opera houses can generally start operating again. “Here I have to be careful in my prognosis, but I hope as soon as possible. We all miss that.”
