Highlights from Richard Strauss' Arabella – and Viennese waltzes by Johann and Eduard Strauss

Join Vienna's sparkling ballrooms at the end of the 19th century! Here we meet Arabella - the young main character in Richard Strauss' opera. She dreams of rolling with the big love – but who could that be?

Arabella is a beautiful opera, a romantic comedy which shimmers with youthful vitality and curious infatuation. It was the last major collaboration between Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, who at the beginning of the 20th century created immortal works together.

The opera was composed in 1932, but the plot is set in Vienna in 1869 at the time when the Viennese waltz established itself in the important music city. Here the brothers Eduard and Johan Strauss II worked for his father, Johan Strauss I, and wrote a number of popular waltzes, polkas and marches. At this concert you will hear both their brilliant dance music and excerpts from Arabella – which takes place in the Viennese ballrooms.
