What would Vienna be without the Prater? Hardly any other living space in Vienna exudes so much joie de vivre and energy. A delightful mix of the most beautiful melodies from the realm of the so-called "light muse" is intended to make the hearts of the Viennese and visitors to Vienna beat faster, continuing a tradition that attracted crowds of entertainment seekers to the Prater from the mid-19th century until well into the 20th century. The concert has the character of a musical family picnic - the audience will be given blankets and baskets, sit on the lawn and listen to the orchestral sounds under the direction of conductor Dirk Kaftan. Renowned artists have announced themselves as vocal soloists between operetta and pop.
