As a presenter, I adhere to Billy Wilder’s first commandment of show business: “Thou shalt not bore thy audience”. Finding surprising approaches to classics and novelties from all genres is my mission and gives me great pleasure.


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!

No one wants to own it. Anyone who wants to conquer it must first solve three riddles. If they don’t succeed, they will pay with their lives. The Vienna State Opera is staging Puccini’s operatic blockbuster “Turandot” about power, death and love in a new production by Claus Guth, under the musical direction of Marco Armiliato, with a prominent cast including Asmik Grigorian in the title role and Jonas Kaufmann in the role of Prince Calàf. ORF culture presenter Teresa Vogl provides orientation on what is probably the oldest theme of tragic love, the inseparable unity of Eros and Thanatos.

Vienna Prater Picnic
A musical start to the vacations with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra

Friday, 01.07.2022 | live-time-shifted from 8:15 pm on ORF 2

What would Vienna be without the Prater? On July 1, the ORF and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra want to enrich the early summer attractions in the Prater with a new open-air concert on the famous Kaiserwiese. A delightful mix of the most beautiful melodies from the so-called “light muse” between operetta, Schlager and musical, as well as from pop and modern Viennese song should make the hearts of the Viennese and Vienna visitors beat faster and thus continue a tradition that has attracted crowds of entertainment seekers in the Prater since the middle of the 19th century until well into the 20th century. Renowned artists have announced themselves as vocal soloists: the charming young soprano Nicola Hillebrand is known above all from the world of opera and from her international concert appearances; she enchants her Viennese audience with songs and duets from well-known operettas from Emmerich Kálmán to Robert Stolz. She is accompanied by the Austrian baritone Daniel Schmutzhard, who feels equally at home in challenging opera and operetta roles as he does as a sensitive interpreter of song on the concert podium.
At the open-air concert on the Kaiserwiese, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under conductor Dirk Kaftan will perform together with pop icon Markus WANDA for the first time!
Lisa Pac and Allegra are two young, passionate musicians representing the Viennese pop/rock scene who have close family ties to the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.
Cultural presenter Teresa Vogl will guide the audience through the program, taking them on a journey through old and new attractions of Vienna’s Wurstelprater.

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.

His name is Waldemar…
…and has black hair!

His home is Berlin, but I love him! This is the refrain of a famous hit song by Zarah Leander, interpreted by the young Austrian singer Ethel Merhaut. In the song, a blond Ralf from fairy tale land is sought – one can only say: Think local, in pandemic times this also applies to love.

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.
