It was wonderful. I highly suggest as we did buying the best seats. We did not buy the VIP though and were glad we didn't. We had 3rd row center and saw all the facial expressions and heard the sound well. The room has a flat floor so if you purchase low priced tickets it would be difficult to see the dancers and singers that were excellent. It was a highlight of the trip to us.
Amazing performance, beautiful romantic ambiance. We enjoyed it a lot and would recommend to anybody to attend.
The concert was brilliant and we enjoyed every bit of it. We bought VIP tickets which meant we sat in the front row and this was well worth it.
We were expecting just an instrumental concert. However, there was also opera singers (some with a sense of humor) and dancers that added to the whole experience. The lightning storm also added to the ambiance. Totally worthwhile!
Wonderful, stunning, phenomenal. I was by myself and had the perfect seat in the third row, dead center. I bought the A seating ticket and couldn't have been happier. There is a great artist to purchase drawings from and a bar for a drink before the show and during intermission. Highly recommended!
Our concert was actually in the palace itself instead of the Organgerie and it was fantastic. We would really recommend this evening. The dancers and opera singers really added to the special music of the orchestra.
Really enjoyable concert. The music had nice variety, and was very well done. The concert hall was too warm, but the evening was great.
The concert was moved to the white and gold room of the palace. This is an incredible room and a fabulous place for the concert, acoustics were very good there. That was a nice plus. Unfortunately, it was a terribly hot evening with a large audience; for reasons only the administration knows, windows were kept closed until intermission. It was almost unbearable to sit in that room; a portion of the audience left at intermission and did not return, a member of my group felt faint and left within 15 minutes of the concert start. As for the concert, the vocal soloists were the stars. Their voices and interaction with each other and the audience made the concert enjoyable (and the rating of 4 stars given here).
However, and perhaps because of the heat, the horn player had difficulty hitting the proper notes. I found that annoying given the professional stature of the ensemble. Otherwise, I'd have to give the ensemble high marks for adeptly playing in that heat. And, perhaps because of the heat or constraints of the space, there were no dancers in this particular concert. Likewise, no mention was made that the dance portion of the program was canceled. That's a shame, too, given that half of the program was devoted to Strauss.
We sat in the B section. That allowed limited views of the chamber ensemble, good view of the soloists. The C section is very far back, especially in that large room, and may not be worth the price of the ticket if anyone hopes to see anything.
Good experience. No real difference between the more expensive seats near the front as we noticed no difference in sound quality whilst moving around the hall
A very good evening - Viator were great with directions for tickets and description of evening concert. Also refund for friends unable to go to Vienna shortly before departure, due to a family illness, was promptly dealt with.
Would highly recommend - sorry no photos as not allowed at the concert!
Everything was very nice in Vienna, - the tour bus and the concert too. The only thing, I wish that your website will let know people of upcoming events in town, because it effected the bus schedule which shortened our tour. They had marathon on that day and stopped tour buses at 4 which is 1.4 to 2 hours earlier. Please, let people know of any events that going on in town on those dates.
