A New Year’s Concert will be performed by Budapest’s Johann Strauss Orchestra
Strauss meets Offenbach
To celebrate what will be the bicentenary of Offenbach’s birth in 2019, the Johann Strauss Orchestra will be performing music by both Strauss and Offenbach at Lyon’s Bourse du Travail.
A jam-packed programme
The concert will commence with pieces by Strauss, such as A Night in Venice, followed by those of Offenbach, including his famous Can Can and Orphée aux enfers (Orpheus in the Underworld). As is tradition, the concert will finish with a performance of Strauss’ The Blue Danube followed by Radetzky March.
