The Christmas concerts performed by the Ensemble Wiener Collage and conducted by René Staar have become a cherished tradition. This year, the evening is staged by the enterprising young director Iliya Roitman. Christmas is being celebrated differently in 2022: instead of contemplation, the focus is on outlandish customs, satire, and garish joyfulness.
