Predictably Mozart/Strauss but great to be in a lovely setting (Borse Concert Hall). Small chamber orchestra (10) along with a couple of dancers & 2 singers. The orchestra itself were excellent, playing with obvious feeling & enjoyment. The violin solos were very very good. Singers...More

This is a great way to experience the best of Vienna without being big into classical music, ballet or opera. Each section is short but powerful and very relaxed atmosphere. Just wrap up because it's a bit chilly!

The performers: musicians, dancers, and singers, were excellent. The music choices were predictable, but fit, considering it is Vienna. An otherwise delightful evening was almost ruined by several members of the audience. It seemed like a third of the guests were from a Japanese tour--2...More

This event was an option on our Gate 1 cruise. I give the experience an absolute five stars. The concert featured Mozart and Strauss. They also had vocalists and musicians performing other offerings very well. We would do this again in a second.

The night we attended the "orchestra" consisted of a string sextet with flute, clarinet, piano and a little percussion. They played very well and the 75 minutes of music was just the right amount. The programming is perfect for the typical vacation night out: plenty...More

There are a wide variety of evening concerts featuring Mozart and Strauss in Vienna. They tend to be tourist evenings aimed at tour groups rather than serious musical events and this is no exception. It is rather pricey for a short programme (it starts at...More

This wonderful professional ensemble performed familiar works by Mozart and Strauss with solo singers and a pair of ballet dancers. All of this is a glorious salon reminiscent of centuries old royal palaces.

The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at
its finest: and this is what makes it popular with
locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small
independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood
cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town
palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts

We got front seats, a part of our tour, but as others have stated, the room is small so wherever you are the view is good. Front was good, but being not so close could give you just as pleasurable a view. Dress is nice... More
