Last months of Cats in Vienna

The hit musical Cats has little more than one month left in Vienna. Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Grizabella and the other cats display a cat's life in the black theatre tent until the first of July.

The legendary musical classic Cats has astonished more than 65 million people around the world since it first opened in London in 1981. In Vienna, the show ran for seven years without a break.

The production is the original London version of Cats but in German language. The audience takes part more than ever before in the hustle and bustle of the legendary Cats' Ball, because up to three quarters of the circular stage is surrounded by rows of spectators.

None of the 1800 seats is more than 20 meters from the centre, where the four-legged creatures skulk around on their golden shimmering junk yard.

The story of Cats is based on the literary draft of Nobel Prize winner T. S. Eliot, while the world-famous melodies are by Andrew Lloyd Webber. His Cats songs have written musical history: everyone knows the stirring song "Memory", sung by stars such as Barbra Streisand and Angelika Milster.

The black theatre tent can be found on Karl-Farkas-Gasse 1, 1030 Vienna.
