Grand New Year's Eve Concert 2022
"ALLES WALZER" - Concert with Ballet
The exclamation “Alles Walzer” (“Everybody waltz!”) traditionally marks the official opening of the Vienna Opera Ball. This year, it aptly describes the New Year’s Eve celebration at the Great Festival Hall. Musical Director Leslie Suganandarajah, the Mozarteum Orchestra, opera ensemble soloists and the ballet dancers of the Salzburg State Theatre welcome audiences to this extraordinary end-of-the-year concert, whose 2022 edition will focus on waltzes.
Names like Joseph Lanner, Johann Strauss (the Elder and the Younger) and Émile Waldteufel traditionally epitomise the Viennese Waltz genre. But the programme also encompasses composers who are less known for their affinity for waltzes, such as Maurice Ravel or Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. In anticipation of the world premiere of her latest opera, young composer Alma Deutscher will also contribute a waltz suite of her own.
For decades, the Great Festival Hall has served as the venue for the Grand New Year’s Eve Concert of the Salzburg State Theatre and the Mozarteum Orchestra. For many visitors from near and far, the concert is an annual highlight. With a clearly outlined thematic programme – this year presenting a bouquet of the most beautiful melodies from the Austrian and global traditions of symphonic waltzes – Salzburg hails the new year even before the clock strikes midnight.
