State Theatre New Jersey presents “Salute to Vienna – New Year’s Eve Concert” on Saturday, December 31 at 5 p.m. This annual State Theatre tradition features singers, dancers, and a full symphony orchestra. Tickets range from $39-$125. 

“Salute to Vienna” re-creates the famed Neujahrskonzert, hosted each year in Vienna’s legendary Musikverein. The short, effervescent pieces performed in the concert by a full orchestra are brought to life with ballroom dancing and ballet and include the music of Johann Strauss and his contemporaries with selections from operettas, overtures, and the “Blue Danube Waltz.”

Featured artists include the Strauss Symphony of America; conductor Alastair Willis (London); soprano Micaëla Oeste (Berlin); tenor Martin Piskorski (Vienna); dancers from Europaballett St. Pölten (Austria); and champion ballroom dancers.   

The State Theatre New Jersey is at 15 Livingston Avenue in New Brunswick. Visit for tickets and additional information.
