Strauss & Mozart Concert
in the Hofburg Vienna and the Konzerthaus

The world-famous melodies by Mozart and waltzes by Strauss have their origins in Vienna. They belong to this beautiful city just like St. Stephen’s Cathedral or the “Heuriger” and are its cultural heritage and landmark at the same time.

The Vienna Hofburg Orchestra presents the most popular compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the Strauss family as well as works by Kalman and Lehar in its Strauss & Mozart concerts.

The orchestra consists of up to 40 musicians and is accompanied by internationally renowned opera singers and classical ballet from Vienna’s opera houses.

The concerts traditionally take place in the Ceremonial Hall and Festival Hall (Zeremoniensaal) of the Vienna Hofburg Imperial Palace and the Mozart Hall of the Konzerthaus Vienna.

On special occasions the concerts also take place at the Vienna State Opera.

Program: Mozart, Johann Strauss, Kalman, Lehar

Venues: Hofburg Vienna, Konzerthaus Vienna, Vienna State Opera

Tickets: starting from € 45,-

The Program

From May to October, the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra plays the best-known works of Johann Strauss, lively operas and operettas, and duets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Emmerich Kálmán, and Franz Lehár. The orchestra accompanies internationally renowned opera singers and ballet soloists from Vienna’s popular opera houses.

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!

Hofburg Vienna – Ceremonial Hall

The Ceremonial Hall (Zeremoniensaal) of the Vienna Hofburg was built in the Classicist style from 1802 to 1806 under Emperor Franz I by the court architect Ludwig Montoyer.

In 1810 Napoleon chose the Ceremonial Hall for his courtship and to ask Emperor Franz I for the hand of his daughter Archduchess Marie Louise.

Emperor Franz Joseph I (1830 – 1916) and his wife Elisabeth held annual symbolic foot washing ceremonies and washed the feet of 24 old men and women. This ritual was to honor the peoples’ religious customs and the reigning couple saw it as their personal matter of care.

The Ceremonial Hall also accommodated court concerts and balls. Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth held grand gala evenings such as the “Ball bei Hof “(Court Ball) to which only the Royal Household and high aristocracy were admitted.

Until the end of the monarchy in 1918, the ceremonial room served as a throne room.

Hofburg Vienna – 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.

Konzerthaus Vienna – Mozart Hall

The Mozart Hall is the second largest hall in the Konzerthaus Vienna.
Its 704 seats are divided into balcony and ground floor. For a classical concert it provides both an informal intimacy and the necessary space for a fantastic musical experience.

The Mozart Hall enjoys a worldwide reputation for its unique acoustics.
As a result, it is used for sound recordings on a regular basis and makes the Mozart Hall particularly popular with leading orchestras and soloists.

Vienna State Opera

One of the finest orchestral associations in Vienna meets one of the most famous opera houses in the world.
Accompanied by internationally renowned opera singers and ballet soloists, the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra will present classic Viennese compositions at the Vienna State Opera.

The State Opera was built in 1869 in the Neo-Renaissance style according to plans by August Sicard von Sicardsburg and Eduard van der Nüll and is one of the most prominent landmarks in Vienna.
