A Viennese Afternoon With Strauss In Thurles

What better way to spend a dreary Saturday afternoon in January than by listening to the romantic sounds of Johann Strauss. Now in its 9th year, a Viennese Strauss Gala is back here again in Thurles on tour on the stage of The Source Arts Centre, by popular demand.

This time they will arrive with a sparkling new production, authentically costumed, cleverly staged and wonderfully choreographed.

This truly breathtaking show is a magical mixture of music, song and dance and re-creates the nostalgia and romance of the grand ballrooms of 19th century Vienna. With little imagination required, you the audience will be introduced to a by-gone age of glamorous Soirees ( parties or gathering held in the evening, in someone’s home,) and the show will also highlight some of the great operettas of Emmerich Kalman, Johann Strauss and Franz Lehar, including de Fledermaus, The Merry Widow and many, many more.

The European Orchestral Ensemble will accompany four Soloists from major Opera companies including Opera North, English National Opera and D’Oyly Carte. It doesn’t get any better than this, for a truly authentic feel of a Viennese Gala this show will appeal to the romantic as much as the music aficionado.

Fine and elegant costumes simply add to the pleasure, bring home wonderful memories after an afternoon with Strauss. For lunchtime specials or afternoon tea reservations, ring Matt or Sheena at Tel: 0504-58858.

Date: Saturday 26th January, Time: 1.30pm
