Afternoon with Strauss

For the 20th time, the Cracow Saltworks Museum Wieliczka organizes the summer cycle of concerts called “Afternoon with Strauss.”

Summer meetings at the courtyard of the Castle are a true feast for connoisseurs of classical music. Year by year, the musical genius of the Austrian conductor, violinist and composer brings together hundreds of people who listen to his music performed by modern musicians. The Castle courtyard will be filled with sounds of classical compositions performed by the “Obligato” Strauss Orchestra conducted by Jerzy Sobeńko; the orchestra will be accompanied by singers from the Cracow Opera and Philharmonic Hall. The artists, the scene arranged in the fashion of the old Viennese garden and J. Strauss looking from a big screen will make sure that the guests  “will be transferred” to the world of the 19th century Vienna where waltzes, polkas and marches reigned. The concert at the end of the cycle will be dignified by performance given by the singers Edyta Piasecka and Zbigniew Witkowski, whose voices will resound in the unique scenery of the underground chamber of A. Długosz at the depth of 135 metres.

Subsequent concerts will be held on: 28.07.2011 and 25.08.2011 at 4.00 courtyard of the Saltworks Castle. The cycle will end with the finale concert on 29.09.2013 r. in the A. Długosz chamber in the mine at 4.00. p.m.
