Music & Theatre, Vienna
Try to get tickets for an evening concert in the Muziekverien. Yes it is mainly for tourists but the concerts are fantastic and it is a chance to see the beautiful golden concert hall which it used for the New Years Concert.
Dress Code: just everyday clothing although some people do dress up in evening dress. It is mainly tourist so no everyone has evening clothing with them - we certainly didn't!
There are two English theatres (Fundnus 9th district and in the Josefstadt 8th district)in Vienna as well as the Burg and Volk theatres. If you can get hold of standing tickets for the Opera then just don't miss out on the opportunity its worth it just to see inside the building! There are always great musicals on as well such as Hair or Tommy.
I can’t think of a better way to spend the evening than attending the opera in Vienna. We saw a German, modern, version of “Romeo and Juliet.” It was very entertaining and we were able to buy “under 26” tickets which allowed us to save money. We especially liked the fact that the little screens in front of our seats translated everything they sang to English.
Dress Code: Definitely dress up. You’ll see everything from diamonds to mink at the opera. Unfortunately, since we were trying to “rough it” we didn’t have very dressy clothes. I even wore my snow boots under my long black skirt, hoping that the material would hide them.
There are many spectacles of waltz and dance designed for tourists. But being a music lover I must suggest you go for the real thing, a concert of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra at the Konzerthaus, or the Wiener Philharmoniker (one of the very best in the world) at the Musikverein, that's what there is of most sublime in terms of music and then it's what Vienna is all about. Not to mention the beauty of the music halls and the fact that, well, MOZART, played here...
Culture vultures will love this.... Catch a 'live' performance here at the world famous - Vienna Concert Hall.
