Nikolaus Habjan is a true multitasker, thrilling audiences everywhere as puppeteer, puppet-maker and director.

In addition, he devotes himself to a very special musical genre: concert whistling. He rediscovers what was once a very popular art form, whistling his way through some of the most breakneck, colourful arias, with almost unbelievable virtuosity. With his Viennese charm, he humorously guides his audience through the programme.

Nikolaus Habjan is accompanied by an extravagant ensemble consisting of piano, violin, cello, accordion and harmonica.
