Salute to Vienna

Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert

More celebratory and sophisticated than a glass of fine champagne, Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert is a delight for the eyes and the ears. This January 2, a stunning new program featuring Strauss waltzes and sweeping melodies from Die Fledermaus and The Merry Widow will be performed by a full orchestra, acclaimed European singers, ballet as well as beautifully costumed ballroom dancers that will waltz you through romantic vignettes. Fall in love with the Blue Danube Waltz all over again and clap until the last note of the Radetzky March.
