Summer Night Concert 2017

The World’s Biggest Annual Classical Open Air Concert


The Vienna Philharmonic with Christoph Eschenbach & Renée Fleming

Dive into a musical world of fairytales and myths with Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty, Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel, arias from Dvořák‘s Armida & Rusalka, John William’s Harry Potter and much more!

The Summer Night Concert, performed this year on May 25th 2017, is an annual open-air event, which has been held since 2008. Thanks to its UNESCO World Heritage setting in the Baroque park of Schönbrunn with the palace as a backdrop, the Summer Night Concert adds great visual charm to its superb musical quality. This event is classical music at its very best.

Central to the Vienna Philharmonic’s 2017 Summer Night Concert are German, French, Russian and Czech fairytales as well as a contemporary fantasy figure that is Anglo-Saxon in origin. Fairytales and myths have inspired composers from time immemorial, and audiences, too, have invariably been enthralled by the unending struggle between good and evil.

This unique concert experience is available on CD, DVD and Blu-ray.
