Release begins: Hosted by irrepressible showman Rainer Hersch, the performance recreates the ambiance of a 19th century Viennese ballroom as he guides the audience with a dash of comedy through a frolicking show filled with music, laughter and dance.

Rainer will be conducting the Johann Strauss Orchestra’s classic renditions of Strauss masterpieces including ‘Blue Danube Waltz’, ‘Radetzky March’, ‘Roses From The South’, ‘Thunder and Lightning Polka’ and ‘Perpetuum Mobile’ with charming soprano Kristy Swift performing a sparkling selection of much-loved songs from the era of romance including ‘Laughing Song’ from Die Fledermaus. Completing the cast, the highly acclaimed Johann Strauss Dancers, in glorious costumes of the period, capture the experience of the occasion, dancing to the most popular waltzes ever composed. A delectable fusion of music, dance and song the show has been captivating audiences over four decades in what has to be the ultimate Viennese party.
