fright nightHallowe’en, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day and Reformation Day. In many parts of the world, the Christian religious observances of All Hallows’ Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead, remain popular as it does here in Vienna, although elsewhere, it is a more commercial and secular celebration.

For this month’s theme, Cake Club Vienna will be observing the more ‘fun’ side of Hallowe’en where you are asked to bake a cake that demonstrates the meaning of ‘Fright Night’ to you. Bring along your spooky bakes for a tasty evening.

operaIn the midst of the carnage of World War I, 23-year old Sergei Prokofiev escapes to his desk and frantically writes down “The Gambler” – an opera on Fyodor Dostoyevskys autobiographical novel. In fictive “Roulettenburg”, a strange clique of trundling figures has gathered, all lusting after money, gambling, affection, among them a retired general expecting a substantial legacy that would allow him to settle his debts. All men, including her private tutor Alexej, idolize his stepdaughter – but all plans scatter, all hopes are dashed, and leave behind a doomed circle of lost characters…

19956086_1419812951400702_3665933401770490557_oTedX Vienna: “On The Edge” is a sign of the times. On the one hand, humanity is experiencing exponential growth in ideas at the cutting edge of technology and science. On the other hand, society has seemingly been driven to the edge, with divisions rapidly spreading across the world. The conference will blend advances on the edge of a breakthrough in fields like AI, blockchain or gene editing with personal stories of living on the edge and ideas for getting an edge on pressing global issues like climate change and inequality.

rubensPeter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) was a star during his lifetime, and he remains a star today. The works included in the show “The Power of Transformation” – among them around seventy loans from the world’s foremost collections such as the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the Prado in Madrid or the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. – have been carefully selected to create juxtapositions and confrontations that document how Rubens worked, how he created his vivid, carefully contrived artworks.
