Salute to Vienna celebrates Austria’s famous Neujahrskonzert (New Year’s Concert), a nationally televised event somewhat akin to New York City’s crystal-ball countdown. Dancers perform in one of Vienna’s elaborate palaces to live music, offering a peek back at an era when Austria ruled an empire. This touring show offers waltzing, polka, ballet, singing and lots of music from the Strauss Symphony of America, conducted by Mozarthaus Vienna’s Niels Muus. Definitely mit schlag, but a fun way to stretch the New Year’s celebrating before committing to those resolutions.
