Music Film Festival at City Hall Square 30.6.-2.9.2012

Category: General
Every summer, City Hall Square becomes a pulsating meeting point for classical fans and night owls – with lots to please the palate as well as free film shows.

Against the backdrop of the illuminated City Hall, a first-rate program on a giant screen gets the hearts of all music lovers beating faster as darkness falls. The selection of classical super-hits ranges from opera and operetta to dance and concert performances.

The concerts are not limited solely to the classical genre: some evenings are given over to jazz, musicals or pop/rock - in 2012 with Adele, Anastacia, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones, Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald.

Opera highlights are Puccini's "Tosca" with Angela Gheorgiu and Jonas Kaufmann (2011), Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro" and "The Magic Flute" as well as the biggest State Opera event of last year: Anna Netrebko and Elīna Garanča in Donizetti's "Anna Bolena".

Kálmán's "The Gypsy Princess" and Lehár's "Merry Widow", both operetta productions from Mörbisch with Harald Serafin, provide light and lively entertainment. Ballet fans are offered the "Nutcracker", "Coppelia" and "Alice in Wonderland".

In addition, around 20 top restaurateurs invite you to embark each day on a culinary world tour starting in the morning, with lavish delights from all over the world.
