It is also the largest venue for spoken theatre in Europe, combining tradition with diversity and progress. During the season from September through June, more than 400,000 viewers visit more than 800 performances at the Burgtheater, as well as the Akademietheater, the Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz and the Vestibül (vestibule). Since 14 October 2014, the Burgtheater has been under the direction of Karin Bergmann, the first woman ever to hold this post.
