My mission and pleasure is to find surprising approaches to classics and innovations from all genres.


Whether on ORF cultural television, Radio Österreich 1 or on the open stage, what drives me is curiosity: in music, in people, in art and culture.


To indulge in the beautiful with esprit, easily but never superficially—long-standing partners such the Vienna Philharmonic, the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna and concert organisers like Jeunesse appreciate that—as most of all, does the audience.


I look forward to putting your event in the best light!

Interchanges: Ethel Merhaut in St. Corona

Monday, 10.05.2021 | 11.25 pm on ORF 2

For years, singer Ethel Merhaut has been an integral part of the young Viennese music scene. With charm and verve she dusts off chansons, foxtrots, film music and tangos of the 20s and 30s and with her interpretation builds a bridge to the present. The selection of songs is not only guided by her own identity as a Viennese with Jewish roots, but also by her interest in changing images of women.
For ORF, the charismatic singer now presents some songs from her new album “Süß & bitter” in the series “Wechselspiele – Konzerte in St. Corona” and in a special setting: Cultural journalist Teresa Vogl acts as a representative for the live audience and talks to the artist about frivolity and feminism in between.

“The Case of Parsifal”

Saturday, 17.04.2021 | 10.00 pm on ORF 2

Richard Wagner’s stage festival “Parsifal” is the second in-house production of the new State Opera Directorate under Bogdan Roščić. The ORF accompanies the elaborate new production with large-scale OB technology and initially shows Wagner’s last stage work in a two-hour compact version with a look at the work. Under the title “The Case of Parsifal”, ORF has developed an unusual broadcast format which, apart from viewing the new production, also provides intimate insights into Richard Wagner’s mythical cosmos. Selected opera scenes illustrate the scenic and musical realisation of the new production, and contributions on the historical models, the genesis and impact of Wagner’s opera, the new scenic version by Kirill Serebrennikov and much more provide a comprehensive insight into the world of Parsifal and Co.
ORF cultural journalist Teresa Vogl talks to the singing stars of the new production: Jonas Kaufmann can be heard in the role of the title character, ElĪna Garanča celebrates her debut as Kundry and Philippe Jordan conducts the Vienna State Opera Orchestra.

His name is Waldemar…
…and has black hair!

Reden in der Eden

Teresa Vogl hosts the ORF Late Night Show
“Reden in der Eden” (“Talks in Eden”)

“Da neulich, da sitz’ ma in der Eden und reden”, Helmut Qualtinger once sang, thus finally turning the traditional Viennese nightclub into the most famous bar in the country at the end of the 1950s. The musical Late Night Show of the ORF is embraced by the dignified cocktail party ambience of the Eden Bar: the bar as a place of longing, as a living room, as the last bastion.

The pillars of the show are talk-music performances. Teresa Vogl and violinist Aleksey Igudesman welcome Hollywood film composer Hans Zimmer and Austrian actress Verena Altenberger as talk guests; Austrian shooting star Wenzel Beck performs his song “Immer wieder” live.Immer wieder.
Die Stageband The stage band “The Evesdrops” will provide musical running gags and a music quiz for Hans Zimmer as well as the appropriate accompaniment to Verena Altenberger’s spontaneous belly dance.
Rather than a talk show, Reden in der Eden is a declaration of love for (bar) culture.
