Capriole, Levade and Johann Strauß – the performance of "A Tribute to Vienna" with Prof. Günter Seifert, member of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and his philharmonic colleagues will share the highlights of the Viennese Ballet of the White Stallions alternating with musical presentations of the imperial period.

The Spanish Riding School presents its most important exercises of the range of the High School – as usual, in highest elegance and harmony –  among others the “Pas de Deux” or the world famous Schools Above the Ground, for example the Capriole or the Levade.

Professor Günter Seifert presents a typical Viennese repertoire: from the Waltz Song of Johann Strauß Son “Out there in Sieveringthe lilac is blooming already“, the "Chineser Galop” by Johann Strauß Father, the “Jubelwalzer” by Joseph Lanner to the ”Radetzky March”, one of the most famous marches in the world, which traditionally concludes every New Year’s Concert and has a highly symbolic meaning for the Austro-Hungarian monarchy.
