The Program:

In the program for the Christmas Concerts, Arias and duets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart inspire in this festive setting, while the unmistakable melodies of Franz Lehár, Emmerich Kálmanns, Franz von Suppés, and above all the Strauss family already prepare us for the end of the year.

The Vienna Hofburg Orchestra will accompany four opera singers of international renown.

Just as Johann Strauss planned, and according to the tradition of all great Viennese orchestras, the musicians have prepared some musical jokes to delight the audience once again every evening!


The Festival Hall:

The Festival hall (Festsaal) is the largest hall in the Vienna Hofburg with almost 1,000 m2.

The impressive ceiling paintings by the painter Schramm show the motto of Emperor Franz Joseph I. “Viribus Unitis” (With united forces).
Eduard Veith and Viktor Stauffer have immortalized personalities from Austrian history in the lunettes and octagon fields below.

The Festival Hall was originally planned as a throne room, but was never used in this form because the monarchy ended before its completion.
