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.
A good deal. The concert was wonderful and so was the ambience
The concert which took place in Schonbrunn Palace's Orangery was really good. An 8-player ensemble played a good number of enjoyable Viennese pieces, accompanied by two operatic singers really godo and two dancers so-so. Prior to concert, there's a foyer with a bar and souvenir stall. My only gripes are that you have to collect the ticket at the venue instead of providing an official e-ticket since we already have a printed voucher and that they insisted that you check in your jackets and having to pay a fee for it. Other than that, the concert itself is well worth it I opted for the middle portion seats.
Concert was great. But it was not trivial to find the place. It is a bit forgotten corner of the park - far from the usual entrances to the park and palace - we almost missed it, although came about an hour before - but to the wrong entry point.
it was very lovely. I really enjoyed it quite a bit. I really was not going to book something like this and then my friends all said you can't go to Vienna and not do it. Very surprised how much I enjoyed it. It was serious and yet sometimes funny. Quite entertaining.
This was great although we were not aware that the tickets were to sections instead of individual seats. Also, it was quite a small room so any seat would have been fine. I don't think it's worth the extra cost to get seats further up front.
Excellent concert in the Orangerie, right off the Schonbrunn u-bahn 4 stop, 10 mins from Karlsplatz station. Nice variety of music, dance, and song.
The Orangerie was a beautiful setting for this concert, and the music was excellent. My only complaint was having to purchase the program.

Very entertaining concert. We got category A seating, but I think there really was not that much difference between the other category seatings, except for distance from the stage. I'd recommend getting the lesser priced seatings and you'd be as entertained as the rest of the group.
Very good. We used the U Bahn but came out of the wrong exit. A clearer sign indicating the correct exit would have been helpful.
Smaller venue than expected but the music, dancers, and singers were great.
Not really a classical music fan but really enjoyed the evening. Setting was lovely.
If you can book a show in the Vienna Opera house, then do so. This is more of a tourist-y performance rather than a hard core orchestra/opera performance. Also, the place where they held the concert was not really acoustic-friendly. It is just an a large hall in the palace and the seats are not elevated. Good thing we only bought the cheapest one available, because apart from being in the front row - everything is the same. :) But it was nice experience. :)
