… my latest work takes place at the Sommerspiele Perchtoldsdorf: “Molière or The Halo of the Hypocrites”, which is an adaptation I did together with Michael Sturminger based on Bulgakows wonderful play about Molière, where I did the dramaturgy in the production. This production’s entirety and intent bring to light a celebration of theatrical artistry.


For several years including this year, I have done the dramaturgy for the magnificent music festival taking place in September “Arsonore ”, at Schloss Eggenberg in Graz.  In addition to dramaturgy, I manage the Artist organization.


This coming October I will start rehearsing my new play “Iphigenia” which is an adaptation of the famous play of Goethe. My intent is to provide a female perspective of the mythical story. This will take place at the TAG theatre-Gumpendorfer Straße in Vienna. The premiere is on November 30, 2022.


Angelika Messner is a playwrite, dramaturg and director living in Vienna. Her work is marked by variety and quality.  Her artistic roots lie in music with her studies of the violin at the universities of music in Graz and Vienna having shaped her effectively. Rhythm, sound, and the musicality of language remain important aspects of her directorial and literary work.
