Vienna blows 20 million on Johann Strauss festNews
The city of Vienna has allocated 20 million Euros to a bicentenary 2025 festival of the music of the younger Johann Strauss.
There’s not much more to say, except that former Theater-an-der-Wien director Roland Geyer has been engaged as artistic director.
‘Und so the message of joie de vivre from Johann Strauss junior will reach the Viennese populace and radiate out into the world,’ rejoiced City Culture Councillor Veronica Kaup-Hasler.
