Kursalon Vienna: Johann Strauss and Mozart Concert Including 4-Course Dinner

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    The waltz was first popularized within the walls of the Kursalon Vienna in the 19th century, thanks to the talents of Johann Strauss, who celebrated his first great success at a concertmaster here. The venue quickly became a bustling spot for Viennese society to meet and enjoy music.
    Your evening will begin with dinner inside the historic concert hall, at the Restaurant Johann. Settle into your seat and savor four courses of seasonal Viennese dishes. (See Sample Menu below.)
    After dessert, you’ll be shown to your seat for a renowned performance of classical Viennese music in Lanner Hall. Accompanied by opera vocalists and ballet dancers, soak up the sounds of arias, duets, waltzes and polkas, as well as operetta and piano concerto melodies.
    Hear Strauss’ ‘A Little Night Music’ and ‘On the Beautiful Blue Danube,' and Mozart’s famous overture to Le Nozze di Figaro. You’ll also be treated to Johann Schrammel’s ‘Vienna remains Vienna' and many more pieces from local musicians throughout the centuries.
    If you choose to upgrade to a VIP ticket, enjoy front-row seating, a glass of sparkling wine during intermission and a Johann Strauss CD to take home with your Kursalon Orchestra program.

    This show was a good experience for popular classic music not expert listeners. Also the singers (soprano and tenor) were very good too. I would recommend it for a nice entertained night...
