What better way to get the audience in the mood for the new year than a stylish concert with well-known melodies from operetta and musicals? In the New Year’s concerts by the Sorbian National Ensemble, the programme is also expanded to include energetic dance performances by the ballet. In addition to well-known classics by the Viennese Strauss dynasty and their contemporaries, samples of Sorbian composers will also be heard. First-class vocal soloists, a charming presenter and a captivating ballet promise a successful evening.
