    What to Expect
    Make your way to the prominent Vienna State Opera to begin your evening. Since its inaugural performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni in 1869, the venue has since become one of the world’s top opera houses.
    Settle into your selected seat and enjoy a performance from the Vienna Music Orchestra, 30 musicians from top Viennese orchestras devoted exclusively to the works of Mozart. Enjoy a rich sampling of the great composer’s symphonies, instrumental concertos and arias and duets from his operas.
    If you’d like to upgrade your experience, select the VIP package, which includes a gourmet dinner, a carriage ride from the restaurant to the Vienna State Opera House and top concert seating. You’ll also enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine or a soft drink at the venue, as well as the opportunity to meet the performers backstage.
    The program of the Vienna Mozart Concerts is characterized by a very accurate selection of the works. The artistic conception giving ground to the musical sequence of overtures, arias, duets, movements of symphonies and concerts offers powerful insight in the titanic works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

    The Vienna Mozart Orchestra includes 30 musicians from the best Viennese orchestras; 2 opera singers (soprano and baritone) from the Vienna State Opera and Volksopera; and 1 soloist for piano, violin and flute.

    Orchestra, conductor and singers perform in period costumes
    Formerly the winter residence of the Habsburgs, the Hofburg has a unique situation among the great festive halls in Vienna. It was here that the Emperor entertained his guests. Modern technical systems, such as air-conditioning have been successfully integrated into this magnificent hall.

    History of the Vienna Mozart Orchestra
    The Vienna Mozart Orchestra was founded in 1986 by musicians from the best and most famous Viennese orchestras and from various chambers music ensembles. The artists all shared the aim of preserving the musical tradition and the cultural of Vienna by dedicating themselves to the cultivation and representation of symphonic chamber music of the Viennese Classical Period.

    As the name Vienna Mozart Orchestra implies, the 30 musicians devote themselves exclusively to the works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the most accomplished representative of that period who, though born in Salzburg, found his home in Vienna. The orchestra's repertoire ranges from all of Mozart's symphonies to a great variety of his instrumental concertos (for violin, piano and wind) to arias and duets from his most famous operas.
