Fabulous period dress orchestra play immaculate music of an evening in Vienna. Who could ask for more? We bought the cheapest tickets and were placed behind the orchestra. Even so, it was a fantastic view and the audio was perfect.

Mozart played by the orchestra in 18th century costume. The concert is held in the Golden Hall at the Musikverein. The repertoire is of Mozart favourites with arias and duets sung by opera singers, also in costume. They also play Strauss’ Radetzky March to finish...More

Going to a concert at the Musikverein is a must when in Vienna. The concert hall was lovely, just as we see it when the New Year’s concert is broadcast on TV (although lacking the floral decoration). A good selection of music, mostly Mozart and...More

Simon H
We are thinking about booking the Wiener Mozart Orchester concert here, either directly with the venue or through an agency such a Viator. The main difference appears to be that booking directly you can choose your actual seat, via an agency only by category (although I have read about people getting better seats than category booked?) Also, Viator includes a free CD, no great shakes, but booking direct doesn’t appear to - is that correct? When booking through Viator is the voucher your actual ‘print at home’ ticket or does it have to be exchanged for physical tickets at the box office (I have read that there can be long queues before the concert starts?) booking direct I believe tickets have to be collected anyway. Finally, I have read conflicting advice about dress code, with some saying smart casual, for men; shoes, trousers and collared shirt (no sneakers, jeans etc.) whilst other saying this is largely ignored - which is correct? Thanks in anticipation, Simon H.

I would not have thought that the Viennese would like this at all! But check with the hall management - you never know!
