Vienna - the city of dreams, where melodies are as sweet as Sachertorte and dance rhythms sparkle like champagne! It simply wouldn't be New Year at Perth Concert Hall without the music of Vienna's most famous son Johann Strauss and his friends. Let us whirl you away to a world of elegant waltzes, playful polkas, and good old-fashioned operetta romance from a real RSNO favourite - tenor Jamie MacDougall. Scotland's National Orchestra and conductor Tianyi Lu will sweep you off your feet with favourites including the Overture to Die Fledermaus, On The Beautiful Blue Danube and the Thunder and Lightning Polka.
