To herald the New Year, our stylish Viennese Gala this year takes a trip from Vienna to Kyiv with BSO Chief Conductor, Kirill Karabits, folk singer, Ruslana Lotsman and a selection of specially arranged traditional Ukrainian folk songs. Music by Mussorgsky and Rimsky-Korsakov and three of Tchaikovsky’s most famous ballet waltzes from Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker and Swan Lake, sit alongside favourites by Johann Strauss II.
