    INFO & TICKETS

    Christmas Concert and Dinner in Vienna: Strauss & Mozart The Vienna Kursalon is a respected and beloved rendezvous for events in exclusive surroundings. Built according to Johann Garben’s plans, the Kursalon was intended to increase the recreational value of Vienna's City Park by offering curative waters to drink. But after its completion in 1867, it soon experienced a change of use: in 1868 the first concert featuring compositions by Johann Strauss took place. The Kursalon, with its dances and promenade concerts, rapidly became the meeting place for Viennese society, who celebrated the cult of the waltz and joie de vivre.

    After recent restauration, the Vienna Kursalon now sparkles in renewed splendor, inviting audiences to experience the musical pleasures that have thrilled visitors since the famed Promenade Concerts of the brothers Strauss. There are four magnificent ballrooms on two floors, and the approximately 1,000 m² large terrace offers views over the City Park.

    INFO & TICKETS

    Residenzorchester In the house of the Rofranos, money was of no object. Everything was of the highest quality – especially the music. In fact, the palace itself was, to quote one of its most famous visitors, “one of the most beautiful chords in the symphony ‘Vienna’”. Since this visitor was no other than the great Robert Stolz, it must be admitted that this opinion came from a competent judge.

    Music was always the invisible hub of the palace, long before Richard Strauss wrote his opera with a Rofrano as the hero. In 1760, for example, the imperial field marshal Prince Joseph Friedrich Wilhelm of Saxony-Hildburghausen moved in as a tenant. He was a knowledgeable music lover of great sensibility and infallible good taste, and engaged no less a personage than Christoph Willibald Gluck as the musical director of his famous house concerts. This was definitely a highlight in the musical history of the palace, but by no means the only one.

    In March of 1786, it was the venue of a private performance of Mozart’s opera “Idomeneo”. The ensemble was comprised exclusively of members of Vienna’s high society, and included such famous names as Baron Pilini and Count Hatzfeld. Mozart, who revised the vocal parts to “suit the vocal chords” of his noble performers, composed a special “scena con rondo” with violin solo for this occasion.

    Another famous figure of the Austrian nobility also took part in an amateur performance in this building: Crown Prince Rudolf, four years before his tragic end. At that time the palace had long since been purchased by Prince Auersperg, whose name it still bears today. The street on which it is located, too, is called Auerspergstrasse, in honour of Prince Adolf Auersperg, who was Prime Minister of Austria for eight years.

    Under the ownership of the Auersperg family, the palace became a centre of high society, the scene of glittering parties and gala evenings. It was here, for example, that a granddaughter of King Gustav Adolf of Sweden was wed to King Albert of Saxony. And three years later, in October 1856, a dance was held which was attended by the 26-year-old Emperor Franz Joseph, his wife Elisabeth and all the members of the imperial family.

    The Gipsy Princess

    The Volksoper Wien is Vienna's largest theater for opera, musicals, and dance. Along with 18th, 19th and 20th century operas, the Volksoper offers more than one hundred evenings of Viennese operetta each year, as well as classical and contemporary dance. Nowhere can one find more polished and authentic performances of operetta, that uniquely Viennese form of musical entertainment.

    At the outset, the Volksoper Wien was neither a state-run theater nor an opera house. It opened in 1898 as the "Kaiser's Jubilee Civic Theater" and was initially run as a conventional stage for drama. In 1903, opera and comic singspiel were incorporated into the repertoire, and Vienna's Civic Theatre gradually metamorphosed into the present-day Volksoper Wien.

    An evening of operetta is an essential experience for anyone who wants to get a real flavor of the Viennese character -- so seek no further for the ultimate musical and theatrical experience at the world's leading operetta venue.

The hall was built in the second half of the eighteenth century in late Renaissance Venetian style. The beautifully designed frescoes are an excellent ambience for enjoying music. Wolgang Amadeus Mozart himself lived in the convent in 1781. He performed several concerts there by order of Bishop Colloredo, one of the most important sponsors of the Mozart family.

    INFO & TICKETS

    Malteserkirche: Christmas Trumpet The Church of Saint John the Baptist, or Malteserkirche, is one of the most important sites in Vienna. Its history is invariably linked to that of the Maltese Order, after which it is named. In the architecture of the interior of the Maltese Church, there are elements from several periods, including Gothic and Baroque. The space itself bears witness to the historical significance of this house and of the Maltese Order as a whole. A record from 1217 indicates the presence of the Maltese Order in Vienna. It also shows that a chapel and hospital were built in the former Heeres and Pilgerstrasse, now called Kärtnerstrasse, which is the main street of Vienna.

    Classic Ensemble Vienna: Concerts at Peterskirche The 'first' St. Peter Church was founded in the second half of the fourth century, on the site where the current church is located. It belonged to the old Roman settlement of Vindobona. The church was torn down and rebuilt between 1701 and 1733 and dedicated to St. Peter. Today, it is one of the most beautiful Baroque churches in Vienna.

    In addition to the elegant main sanctuary, the Peterskirche also hosts concerts in the fascinating and intimate crypt below the main level.
