Johann Strauss Concert Show

Season 2023

Johann Strauss Concert Show

2025 will be Johann Strauss’ anniversary year – all of Vienna will celebrate the 200th birthday of its “Walzerkönig” (Waltz King). In anticipation of this, the Wiener Wurstelprater is getting a new attraction this year as a homage to the Austrian composer.

Tritsch-Tratsch Spiegelzelt

From October 7, 2023, the  Johann Strauss Concert Shows will take place four evenings a week all year round in the new Tritsch-Tratsch Spiegelzelt (mirror tent). The name “Tritsch-Tratsch” goes back to the polka of the same name by Johann Strauss, which, along with the Donauwalzer and the so-called Trinklied from the operetta “Die Fledermaus”, will be one of the musical highlights of the shows. Prater Wien GmbH Managing Director, Michael Prohaska is looking forward to the cooperation:

Lively lightness, casualness and a good atmosphere – that’s what the Viennese Prater stands for and that’s also what Johann Strauss’ music stands for.

The Viennese Prater played an important role in Johann Strauss’s work: on the occasion of the marriage of Emperor Franz Joseph I to Elisabeth in 1854, the Viennese waltz “Elisabethenklänge”, composed by Johann Strauss especially for the occasion, was played at the Emperor’s Festival in the Prater in front of around 200,000 onlookers. A few years later, Johann Strauss himself organised a large public festival in the Vienna Prater.

A feast for ears and tongue

In addition to well-known waltzes, polkas and overtures by Johann Strauss, the orchestra’s repertoire also includes songs and arias from operettas, which are performed together with internationally renowned soloists. Before the start of the Johann Strauss Concert Show and during the half-hour break, the bar and Heurigen buffet leave nothing to be desired with Tritsch-Tratsch Heurigen delicacies created especially for this show.
