Made in Austria

In the world of the Operetta, a kind of the German-language musical, numerous artists take us off onto a musical journey through Austria with their swinging melodies from the "good old time".

About the Operetta Concert

The beauty of waltz and the magic of melody have made Viennese operetta famous all over the world. In Vienna it is opera season all year round. All operettas dream the dream of happiness. But before this can become reality, it usually requires some cunning, comical entanglements and many capers. And not infrequently do we come across pretentious rulers and dignitaries with hollow pomp who are the targets of mockery.

Compared to its French equivalent, the Viennese operetta softened the sharpness of critique and put dance - and in Vienna, the waltz and the "three to four time" - into the spotlight. Here dominate pure love of life and a forgiving indulgence in music. The masterpiece of the genre par excellence, "Die Fledermaus" by the younger Johann Strauss proves that the Viennese operetta is not lacking in wit and subtle ridicule. Together with Karl Millöcker, Richard Heuberger, Franz von Suppé and others, Johann Strauss junior founded the era of the Golden Operetta. With "The Count of Luxembourg", "The Merry Widow" or "The Land of Smiles" Franz Lehár became the founder of the second heyday of Viennese operetta at the beginning of the 20th century. The so-called Silver Operetta Era lasted into the 1930s and composers such as Emmerich Kálmán, Robert Stolz and Oscar Straus were the “pop stars” of the time.

Hallstatt - Small village with a great history

The picturesque village on the lake with the same name owes its existence to the rich salt deposit of salt in the mountain of Hallstatt. 7000 years ago, as the prehistoric humans from Hallstatt began to take the salt from the salt mine who would of guessed, that this little village would give its name to a period in history – the Hallstatt period (800-400 BC). Rich findings in Hallstatt and the upper valley of Hallstatt gave this village international recognition; even today discoveries are still made in the salt mountain of Hallstatt.  Among the most beautiful places of interest are the oldest salt mine in the world and the ossuary in Hallstatt, a romantic boat ride on Lake Hallstatt, a trip to the breathtaking cave world in Obertraun and a visit to the Lake Gosau with the mighty Dachstein glacier. Additionally, Bad Goisern is popular in the summer with hikers and bikers. In winter guests are lured in by the ski areas of Dachstein West in Gosau and the Ski and Freeride Arena in neighboring Obertraun with perfect slope conditions. We wish you an unforgettable holiday in Hallstatt!
