This October 24th Europe’s most successful gourmet theatre Palazzo will return to Vienna for its tenth Austrian engagement.
Palazzo is a unique extravaganza which combines fancy cuisine with first-class entertainment inside a mirrored palace in the Austrian capital.
Tables are positioned around a stage and guests are guided through the evening by the Palazzo’s "Grande Dame", a showbiz diva who has come to Vienna in search of true love.
This year’s "Grande Dame" is Amy G. who embraces her role as comedienne, showgirl and emcee with utmost vigour.
She is joined by an international company of jugglers, acrobats, roller-skaters, dancers and circus performers, as well as the Palazzo band "Lonely Hearts" who will take the audience on a journey through musical styles and history.
But, to echo Shakespeare, the course of true love never did run smooth and as events unfold, Amy G’s quest is plagued by the tomfoolery of the clown Peter Shub.
The show is set to be a highly entertaining showcase of talent, taking performance back to the early years of circus.
The evening is also an opportunity to be wined and dined by celebrated Austrian chef Reinhard Gerer whose creations have been referred to as "culinary seventh heaven" by connoisseurs.
Guests will be treated to Gerer’s four course menu which gives classic Austrian cuisine a French twist and the menu incorporates regional products for a down to earth, yet contemporary feel.
The mirrored palace of the Palazzo is constructed inside a grand circus tent that is dressed luxuriously with ornate decorations and lit by candles to create a magical and intimate ambience.
The experience can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages and there is a reduction of 50% off ticket prices on a Sunday for children under 14.
Tickets are priced between 84 euros and 148 euros and tickets for the New Years Eve Palazzo will be priced between 179 euros and 199 euros.
The Palazzo site is within walking distance of the Prater and the show will be in full swing from October 24th until February 28th.
Tickets can already be booked from the box office on 0800 01 77 66 (open Mon – Fri 9am – 6pm) or online at http://www.palazzo.org/PALAZZO_Wien_eng/tickets/PALAZZO_Wien_Tickets.php.
The website also provides more information about the show’s history and participants.
