Unexpected treat

We went to this concert with friends.Because I am not a classical music fan I did not expect much. To my surprise I enjoyed the concert and was thoroughly entertained.

We watched a good concert at The Imperial Palace. Its for lovers of Strauss. The sopranos were excellent and the small orchestra were superb.

This is a do not miss event while in Vienna! The musicians are some of the best I have ever seen and the singers and ballerinas added another dimension to the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

This was the worst choice we made in a 2 week vacation. Commercialized, impersonal, and a hall packed with cheap banquet chairs, wedged tightly together. Be very certain about the venue before you commit, but better yet - find a different service to provide this wonderful music. Go elsewhere. My father was do dismayed by this commercialized scam to bring... More

The orchestra and vocalists were at least good, but the venue was very poor. It appeared to have been a large ballroom with high ceiling, hard wall surfaces, filled with audience on folding chairs. The room was not acoustically designed for performances, so from at least the middle of the hall to the back, the music was deadened and faint.... More

This is a great evening. The palace concert setting is beautiful. The orchestra is great and the singers are excellent. This is a better concert than you get at Schonbrunn.

Like many others, I've watched the New Year's Day Concert from Vienna on TV and wished I could experience it. This obviously isn't quite the same thing but nevertheless extremely enjoyable. I loved the whole experience. It was light hearted an we were kept entertained It was as you would expect really. After the first half we were served with... More
