‘With an extraordinary radiance (hers really is a most beautiful voice)… the blaze in her tone is simply breathtaking’ (The Guardian), Jennifer Davis, fresh from success in English National Opera’s Jenůfa, joins conductor Gavin Maloney and the NSO for a New Year Celebration ushering in Johann Strauss II’s 200th birthday.

Vocal gems include the Czárdás from Die Fledermaus, Heuberger’s ‘Im chambre séparée’, a relishable rarity by Millöcker, and the master of romance Franz Lehár’s ever-popular ‘Meine Lippen’.

Revel in Viennese elegance and glamour with some of the Waltz King’s greatest hits, including the Die Fledermaus Overture, Frühlingsstimmen, Thunder and Lightning Polka, and On the Beautiful Blue Danube.

Viennese magic, too, in Ohne Sorgen! (Josef Strauss) and Capriccio’s ‘Moonlight Music’ (Richard Strauss). 

Did you know?

Johann Strauss had other ideas for his sons, forbidding them to follow his musical career: Johann II was meant to become a banker.

Richard Strauss was not related to the famous musical family of the same name.

Besides much else, he wrote 200 songs, among them his valedictory Four Last Songs which have become a staple of the soprano repertoire.

Franz Lehár had no formal music training; he learned his craft in a theatre orchestra and as a military bandmaster.
