The only thing that exceeded the music, was the building. While this may not have been classic Mozart or Strauss, both would have enjoyed the presentations. If you are a purist, I still think you will enjoy this.

We visited this concert on a Viking cruise, went from 8.30pm until 9.45pm. The music was incredible, the singers world class and the ballet fascinating. There was an excellent comical performance interwoven into the whole evening, well done. Highly recommend.
