Travel to Vienna for New Years 2014, and enjoy the legendary Julie Andrews as your tour guide for the celebration.
From Vienna: The New Years’s Celebration 2014
Julie Andrews returns to host “From Vienna: The New Year’s Celebration 2014” with The Vienna Philharmonic (conducted by Daniel Barenboim) and the Vienna State Ballet.
From Vienna: The New Year’s Celebration 2014, featuring the infectious melodies of the Strauss Family and their contemporaries, will air live on Great Performances, Wednesday, January 1 at 2:30 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings) with an encore performance that evening at 8 p.m.
Andrews celebrating New Years in Vienna continues to be a cherished tradition for viewers and the beloved singer, actress, and author herself. “As often as I’ve come to this simply gorgeous city, its beauty and charms enchant me as they did the very first time. Each year, I find myself quite swept away by Vienna’s extraordinary beauty, and the luscious melodies of the Strauss family and their contemporaries.”
As is customary with these broadcasts, Ms. Andrews will travel from her home base in the Musikverein hall itself to visit multiple picturesque Vienna landmarks: the Sigmund Freud Museum, the Porcelain Museum in the Augarten, the 900-year-old Klosterneuburg Abbey, and the Liechtenstein City Palace.
On January 10, Sony Classical will release the live recording via digital download, followed by a nationwide CD release on January 21, and DVD and Blu-ray on February 4.- Via Press Release
