I am not a fan of classical music, I was almost forced to go to see it, but now I am so glad I could experience it!

Seeing life orchestra is SO MUCH MORE that just listening to it on TV or CD, it is so emotional – I got goosebumps and singing of one solo artist made me cry, it was so touching!

The second half of the programme was slightly too comedic to my taste – more like a Christmas pantomime, but this might bring it closer to the masses, so why not! :-)

We were looking for a night of music in Vienna, a reasonably priced event of good musical quality and a varied program for the different ages in our extended family group. This is not necessarily the right cultural experience for hard core opera buffs. This is an evening of Mozart and Strauss favorites performed by the orchestra and a talented group of opera singers. There is some merriment, a wonderful 90 minute performance of classical favorites in a beautiful hall in the Imperial Palace and always a packed house. We absolutely enjoyed the evening and the event fulfilled our needs and exceeded our expectations. We were pleased with the quality of the music. Seats are not assigned so be there on time to sit close.

We attended this concert after being overwhelmed by the number of concerts available in Vienna.We wanting a concert which would be decent and a reasonable price. We booked the cheapest tickets €42 through viennaconcerts.com so we could get e ticket confirmation which was exchanged for tickets on the night.The concert is funny in parts but we found it hugely entertaining and thought the orchestra and performers were excellent. The hall was beautiful and it really was a highlight of our trip.

Magnificent does not do this extremely entertaining and talented performance justice. We were presented with classical concerts by Johann Strauss and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart featuring international vocal solo artists in one of Vienna’s most beautiful concert halls. An absolute must to do.

A full orchestra of 40 players. It was a high energy performance and extremely entertaining. We have attended six concerts this week in Vienna and would rate this amongst the best and most memorable. We did not feel like it was just another tourist performance.
