Enjoyed the evening entertainment and the the beautiful surroundings. It was a 13 piece band, a ballet pair and a pair of opera singers. Just a great evening!!
Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed this experience, even those among us who were not musically inclined. The program was performed with exceptional skill. The arrangement of the selections was varied with engaging, skilled, and entertaining performers and artists.
That was so beautiful!!! The concert was great, the singers, the dancers, we loved it!!!The concert room was not that big but it was a nice size. I loved Mozart and Strauss so I couldn t ask for more!!
Went for a pre-dinner concert in their restaurant. Quality good - though a little expensive for what we received.
Concert was first class, though we would definitely recommend you purchasing seats in the VIP or A category. The concert hall is not tiered as it was a dance floor originally, and those seated further back from the stage in categories b, c and d would have struggled to see what was happening on the stage. That involved not only the concert orchestra, but vocal soloists and dancers. The orchestral programme was the right mix of popular and classic works of Strauss and Mozart and several other Viennese composers. Overall the concert lasted 2 hours with a 15 minute interval.
An excellent and satisfying evening.
I was not sure about the concert when I purchased the tickets however I am very pleased I did. Recommend the concert to all Vienna visitors.
This was an exceptional experience. The venue was magnificent, the music was all the favorites and the dancers and soloists very fine. We bought tickets that were the next level down from VIP. Ended up on the second row and were able to see everything. So glad we made the reservations before we left on our tour - everything went very smoothly and was very easy. Made arrangements in advance for 5 concerts in Budapest, Vienna and Salzburg. This was the best.
The orchestra seems to enjoy each partition together. They even added animal sounds before a piece. It was just beautiful and well described. Too bad it poured as we got out, we came by the underground!
The location, ambience and quality of the performances were excellent
I thought it might be somewhat mediocre but the musicians were very good. I could have done without the ballet dancers but the Russian soprano was very good. Lots of large tour groups present . If possible, don't take a wrap as the coat storage fee is one euro per item and is mandatory for most people in the audience.
I loved this tour! The music was beautiful, as was the singing and dancing. The seats were great too, even though we had booked the cheapest category. I would definitely do this again!
Excellent night out, food was very reasonable, concert enjoyable
I never thought of myself as a classical music fan. However this experience was just wonderful. It was the highlight of our trip. It brought tears to my eyes. Loved it!
This was one of the highlights of our trip - being able to sit in a music hall and enjoyed the orchestra as well as the ballet dancers and singers. We bought the C section seats but turned out they were as good as the B section seats. I would recommend others to enjoy this performance.
Absolutely perfect evening to celebrate my Grannys 80th birthday. She was in a wheelchair and the staff could not have been more helpful in getting her into her seat and at the end of the evening. The concert itself was a fantastic balance of orchestral music, dance and vocal. The setting was absolutely beautiful as well and was just the perfect amount of time. Would highly recommend.
Fabulous concert which I can't recommend enough - excellent musicians and performers with a well thought out programme of music and a beautiful hall. Fears that audience would be too busy taking photos / selfies from reviews read beforehand were totally unfounded. Sipping prosecco on the outside terrace overlooking the park in the interval was an added bonus.
Highly recommended! Excellent chamber music by the orchestra, singers and dancers! Not to be missed!!
This should be on everyone's itinerary. Best show. Can't recommend highly enough
With only two days in Vienna this concert Johann Straus and Mozart Concert proved to be one of our highlights. The theatre was packed with approx 300 people who were enthralled by the conductor and his orchestra. The supporting singers and dancers were exceptional and performed at a standard well above expectation.
The Kursalon is only a short stroll from the Intercontinental Hotel which proved to be very convenient for us as we had our 4 yr old Grand Daughter traveling with us.
If you are wanting to dine before the performance I'd suggest you book your dinner separately at the Kursalon Restaurant or the very quaint Biergart'l i'm Stadtpark at the canal end of the Kursalon complex.
If you are fortunate enough to be in Vienna on a Tuesday evening the Biergart'l employs one of the most entertaining 4 piece orchestra's that I've had the opportunity to experience food, beer and wine is good and charges reasonable. Tables here are located outside, so you get to enjoy the ambiance of the botanic gardens during good weather.
