Music and scenes from operettas by J. Strauss, Kálmán, Lehár & Abraham
A production of the Budapest Operetta Theatre with the theatre’s operetta stars, orchestra and ballet company
Colourful costumes, rapturous melodies and Viennese waltz: The New Year’s Gala combines the most enchanting melodies of »The Waltz King« Johann Strauss with unforgettable scenes from operettas by Emmerich Kálmán, Franz Lehár and Paul Abraham. A veritable New Year’s fireworks with the ensemble of the Budapest Operetta Theatre! The 50 artists bring with them all that is needed for such an illustrious event: excellent singers, an orchestra in the best of spirits that evokes Hungarian passion and Austrian »Gemütlichkeit« alike, and of course the perfectly choreographed corps de ballet with its dashing gentlemen and classy ladies in stylish dress.
Together with his Hungarian contemporaries, Johann Strauss created that blissful flavour of operetta that continues to captivate the world to this day with its fiery music and dreamy songs. Complete with amusing mix-ups, lies and deceit, jokes, skirmishes and a veritable frenzy of music, the audiences can look forward to witnessing the authentic flair of this bygone era’s glitzy city life on stage. Happy New Year!
