VIENNA WAITS FOR YOU 2007
Australian Philharmonic Orchestra’s Not New Year’s Eve Concert
Farewell 2007 with a bang! Join the 60-piece Australian Philharmonic Orchestra for sweeping symphonic and choral arrangements in a spectacular end-of-year concert celebrating the warmth and magic of old Vienna. Vienna Waits for You stars Donald Cant as your singing host, soprano Tiffany Speight and ABC-TV’s Operatunity Oz-winning tenor Roy Best.
Be swept away by the waltz, the polka and loads of beautiful songs, duets and choral pieces from the enchanting world of Viennese operetta featuring favourite melodies from Die Fledermaus, The Merry Widow, Countess Maritza, The Gipsy Baron and more.
Vienna Waits for You promises to be a dazzling display of song and symphony featuring two choirs and some of Australia’s best loved stars of the musical stage along with one of our most popular orchestras.
