The Austrian orchestra will delight the Yucatecan public with the musical program called “Imperial Classical Vienna”, which features monumental works, such as the cello concert by Dvorak, and the most beautiful and subtle melodies of the waltzes of Johann Strauss, including his wonderful waltz “In the Beautiful Blue Danube”, sounds that tell the story of Austria, a country with a long musical tradition.

These great concerts will be held at the José Peón Contreras theater on Saturday, February 16 and Thursday, February 21, 2019.
