From Vienna: The New Year’s Celebration 2021
90min special for PBS.
As the world eagerly bids farewell to 2020, Great Performances continues its beloved tradition of ringing in the New Year with the Vienna Philharmonic at the world-famous Musikverein.
Hugh Bonneville returns as host for a fourth year with Riccardo Muti as guest conductor for the sixth time. The Vienna Philharmonic orchestra performs favorite waltzes by Strauss, and the celebration features the Vienna State Ballet dancing on location from notable Vienna landmarks.
Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, Hugh will host the concert remotely from England on location at Goodwood House.
