Preview: From Vienna: The New Year's Celebration

Julie Andrews Hosts Annual New Year's Day Celebration

From Vienna: The New Year's Celebration 2014 (PBS, 2:30pm and 8pm) - Following his successful leadership of the beloved event in 2009, Daniel Barenboim has been invited for the second time by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra to conduct the traditional New Year’s Concert on the 25th anniversary of their musical collaboration with the General Music Director of the Berlin Staatsoper Unter den Linden.

The City Palace (Stadtpalais Liechtenstein), which has returned to all its former glory after extensive renovation, provides the setting for both of the Vienna State Ballet’s ballet interludes. In charge of the choreography, as he was last year, is Ashley Page. One of the highlights of this year’s concert will be Vivienne Westwood’s costume designs for the dancers.
