Vienna State Opera Chorus to bring New Year tradition to Taiwan

The Vienna State Opera Chorus will return to Taiwan for three 2010 New Year concerts, featuring highlights from Johann Strauss II’s “Die Fledermaus.”

Soprano Keti Tavardi, mezzo-soprano Adrineh Simonian, baritone Zoltan Nagy and tenor Peter Svensson will sing the lead roles from the operetta. Tiziano Duca will be the conductor.

The National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra will collaborate with the Vienna State Opera Chorus to bring to Taiwan for the first time the beautiful Neujahrkonzert tradition with a history of 162 years. Twenty-four singers, including Taiwan’s very own Ho Meng-chieh, will be arriving for the three concerts.

Polka and waltz music will help transport local listeners to Vienna with its old world charm. Johann Strauss II’s “Blue Danube” and Johann Strauss the elder’s “Radetzky March” as program encores promise to work the listeners up and get them in a dancing mood during the first days of the year 2010.

The first of three New Year concerts will take place on January 2 at the Chung Hsing Hall in Taichung. The program will then be presented on January 3 at the Chih Te Hall in Kaohsiung and on January 5 at the National Concert Hall in Taipei.
