Anyone planning a city trip to Vienna, the world capital of music, should not miss out on the chance to attend a classical concert. Vienna has been home to many prominent musicians and composers, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven or Franz Schubert. This city of music is also the place where the waltz was “invented” by the Waltz King, Johann Strauss.
Classical concerts at Schönbrunn Palace
The Schönbrunn Orangery, where Mozart himself once played personally, has been refurbished and today, is used by the Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra for classical concerts with selected pieces from Mozart and Strauss. The concerts are held every day, with the programme changed on a daily basis.
These concerts feature some of the most beautiful overture, arias and duets from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s concerts and operas, such as “Le Nozze di Figaro” (The Marriage of Figaro), “Die Zauberflöte” (The Magic Flute) and “Don Giovanni”. Further highlights from the concerts are the most popular operetta arias, waltzes and polkas from the Waltz King himself, Johann Strauss – from “Die Fledermaus” (The Bat) and “Der Zigeunerbaron” (The Gypsy Baron) to the “Donauwalzer” (The Blue Danube) and the “Radetzkymarsch” (Radetzky March).
The orchestra is accompanied throughout the evening by two opera singers, a soprano, a baritone and a charming ballet duo.
