The Ronacher Theatre project (2006-2008) was like a race against time.
Dressed in festive attire and in high spirits, the premiere audience strolled through the entrance to the newly adapted building of the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien.
At the same time, the construction crews were still bustling about, trying to finish the very last touches and be ready on time.
At the back of the Ronacher, the last workmen were leaving the theatre as the premiere guests were going to their dressing rooms.
Perfect timing? For us, at any rate, it was one of the tightest project finishes in our 50-year company history.
