This entertaining video comprises the enjoyable dance performance A Night in Vienna, a one-hour celebration of the music of the Johann Strausses – father and son. This recording recreates the beauty and atmosphere of the ballroom performances of 19th-century Vienna, charting the rise of the waltz craze. In the wonderful setting of the Hofburg in Vienna, the former residence of the Habsburg rulers, the period instrument orchestra Wiener Akademie plays favourites by the Strauss family and Joseph Lanner, and dance performances in historical costumes recreate the atmosphere of the first half of the 19th century.
