What better way to spend your Saturday afternoon than listening to the romantic sounds of Strauss. Now in its 9th year, A Viennese Strauss Gala is back on tour and returns to the stage of The Source Arts Centre by popular demand. This time with a sparkling new production, authentically costumed, cleverly staged and choreographed. This wonderful show is a magical mixture of music, song and dance, and re-creates the nostalgia and romance of the grand ballrooms of 19th century Vienna. The audience is introduced to a by-gone age of glamorous soirees and Strauss waltzes and also highlights some of the great operettas of Strauss, Kalman and Lehar, including de Fledermaus, The Merry Widow and many more.

The European Orchestral Ensemble will accompany four Soloists from major Opera companies including Opera North, English National Opera and D’Oyly Carte. It doesn’t get any better than this, for a truly authentic feel of a Viennese Gala this show will appeal to the romantic as much as the music aficionado. Fine and elegant costumes simply add to the pleasure, bring home wonderful memories after an afternoon with Strauss.
