Schönbrunn Palace Theatre #2

Joseph Haydn and Wolfang Amadeus Mozart conducted their works at the Schönbrunn Palace Theatre, and the works of Christoph Willibald Gluck were premiered. When Napolean had his headquarters in Schönbrunn, the thatre was renovated and reopened in 1809 with Racine's "Phaedra". During the Congress of Vienna singers of the Kärntnertor Theatre performed at the Schönbrunn Palace Theatre for the royal majesties then present in Vienna.
