A typical New Year’s eve in Vienna may include waltzing or attending an operetta. Here’s what host Alexa Petrenko has in store for her New Year’s edition of “Sunday Night at the Opera”:
“Some of the best New Year’s celebrations seem to happen in Vienna, so that’s where we’ll head to top off 2018 with a grand operatic toast. Sentimentality abounds along with food and libations in delectable bits of Viennese operetta … Fritz Wunderlich gives his whole heart, Sumi Jo drinks a bit too much champagne, Thomas Hampson, Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo become best friends, and the Vienna Philharmonic crowns the evening with the rousing Radetzky March.”
“Sunday Night at the Opera” airs at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
