New Year's Concert 2019

Christian Thielemann made his debut at the New Year's Concert on 1 January 2019. He was particularly taken by the concert waltzes of Josef and Johann Strauss, therefore the concert programme features waltzes such as "Transactions" and "Sphärenklänge" by Josef Strauss and "Nordseebilder" or "Künstlerleben" by his older brother Johann. The Vienna State Ballet appears at its best in the realm of modern, with the young choreographer Andrey Kaydanovskiy being at work.
