“There is only one imperial city - there is only one Vienna”, said Johann Strauss, symbol of the typical Viennese music, who appreciated the city for its unique musical ambient. Just like there is also only one Vienna Royal Orchestra: consisting of more than 150 talented artists, it is one of the absolute top orchestras in Vienna.
A distinctive characteristic of the Vienna Royal Orchestra is the fact that it is composed exclusively of musicians from leading orchestra such as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra or the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.
Every concert is an authentic and unique experience, with a festively-authentically dressed conductor guiding the visitors through the special evening. The imperial feeling is completed by a „Corps de Ballet“, two pairs of dancers from the Vienna State Opera, and internationally renowned soloist singers.
Enjoy this special artistic experience and let yourself be whisked away into the extraordinary acoustical world of Vienna´s Royal Orchestra!
