New Year’s Eve Viennese Gala

Tue 7 Aug 2018

Richard Balcombe conductor
Ilona Domnich soprano

What better way to get the new year off to a joyful start than with the music of the waltz kings of Vienna? 

The BPO’s ever-popular Viennese Gala features a swirl of waltzes, marches and polkas by the Strauss dynasty, alongside an array of songs and arias from well-loved operettas and musicals performed with sparkle by the Russian soprano Ilona Domnich.

This annual gala has become a jewel in the festive season in Brighton—book early to avoid disappointment!
