On the 5th of October the Johann Strauss Ensemble starts a new Strauss concert cycle in cooperation with the Musiktheater Linz, Austria. Called “On the Wings of Song”, the cycle will showcase the international character of the theatre. At each concert, the musicians of the Johann Strauss Ensemble will invite one member of the opera Ensemble as a special guest.
The shows will have their guest’s cultural background as the main theme, as the performed pieces are personally selected by the artists.
