Here are three cities whose past glories still abound: Prague, Vienna and Budapest, once the stomping grounds of the mighty Hapsburg empire, remain three of the finest cities in Europe. Each provides a very different experience, yet their Hapsburg roots and their musical souls bind them together. Something of this timeless spirit is absorbed by all who spend time here, and we will spend three magical nights in each city.

One of the great capitals of Europe, Vienna bears a cultural legacy created by the many artistic geniuses nourished here. In particular, its musical legacy is legendary. Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Strauss, Mahler, and Bruckner all lived in the city, producing music that is still played in concert halls all over the world. We will enjoy performances at the legendary Staatsoper and also at the Volksoper, and will stay at the storied Sacher Hotel.

Prague is one of the most stunning cities in Europe, a UNESCO World Heritage listed gem, lauded as the 'City of a Thousand Spires'. Prague has become the archetypal post‐communist city success story, with seemingly not a month going by without another city being hailed as the 'New Prague'. As well as exploring the history that echoes through the streets of this city, we will attend performances at the Baroque jewel that is the Estates Theater (Don Giovanni, The Abduction from the Seraglio) and also the National Theater (Aida).

Budapest is once again attracting visitors discovering the charms of a city that not only boasts a rich history and beautiful architecture, but also offers a tradition of fine culture and gastronomy. We will attend a performance of Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle at the Hungarian State Opera, a treasure that must be placed among Europe’s great opera houses.
