A three-week citywide festival featuring more than 90 events, all inviting audiences to discover the extraordinary artistic legacy of Vienna. The festival features symphonic and operatic masterpieces, chamber music, and lieder, as well as new sounds emerging from this historic cultural capital. In addition to music, Vienna: City of Dreams shines a spotlight on Vienna’s visual art, film, architecture, politics, science, and history, creating an extensive look at a city that for centuries has drawn artists, dreamers, and innovators from all corners of the world to its dazzling intellectual and artistic life.

The festival’s centerpiece is seven concerts at Carnegie Hall by the renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Vienna State Opera, led by esteemed conductors Franz Welser-MöstDaniele GattiAndris Nelsons, and Zubin Mehta. Their residency includes concert performances of Alban Berg’s Wozzeck and Richard Strauss’s Salome, marking only the second time in their history that the Viennese musicians have performed opera in concert at Carnegie Hall. The orchestra will also perform such masterpieces as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9; Bruckner’s Symphony No. 6; Brahms’s Symphony No. 3; Schubert’s Symphony No. 8, “Unfinished”; and Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, concerts featuring core symphonic repertoire for which the ensemble has long been known.

The Vienna: City of Dreams celebration extends throughout New York City with festival events at leading cultural institutions, crossing arts disciplines to include music, film, visual arts, panel discussions, and even a Viennese Opera Ball, which launches the festival on February 21. Festival partners include the Advent Lutheran Church, (Art) Amalgamated, Austrian Cultural Forum New York, Brooklyn Public Library, Center for Architecture, Chumir Foundation for Ethics in Leadership, Czech Center New York, Friedman Benda, The Jewish Museum, The Juilliard School, Keyes Art Projects, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Lehmann Maupin Gallery, Leo Baeck Institute, The Morgan Library & Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, Music at Our Saviour’s Atonement, Neue Galerie New York, The New York Art Resources Consortium (with The Frick Collection, Brooklyn Museum, and The Museum of Modern Art), The New York Public Library, The Paley Center for Media, and the Viennese Opera Ball in New York.
