Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra
The Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra Vienna is a traditional Viennese chamber orchestra, formed in 1994. Besides the concerts at the Orangery Schönbrunn, the orchestra has given many sold-out concerts across the world, including Japan, Croatia, Germany, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Denmark.
The Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra is accompanied by two opera singers, a soprano and a baritone, and two ballet-dancers in authentic costumes.
From 1.November to 23.December and from 2. January to 31. March the concert will be performed by the Schönbrunn Chamber Ensemble, with reduced number of musicians.
The Schönbrunn Orangery was built around 1750. The name reflects the original use of the building as a place where citrus trees were housed during the cold winters. In the 18th century, however, an orangery was not just a greenhouse but a symbol of prestige and wealth, and a venue for concerts and parties.
During many decades, royals and aristocrats enjoyed themselves at lavish parties here at the Schönbrunn Orangery. Emperor Joseph II was especially fond of holding celebrations in the Orangery with festively-decorated banqueting tables, ranks of flowering plants and illuminations in the citrus trees.
It was at the Orangerie Schönbrunn, where the famous musical duel between Mozart and Salieri, took place (Mozart lost).
The Russian Crown Prince, the future Czar Paul, and Emperor Josef II dined at the Orangerie Schönbrunn in the late fall of 1781.
After a thorough renovation in 1997, the former greenhouse was restored to its original beauty. The rear section of the Orangery still serves its original purpose, while the especially elegant front section is used for concerts and all kinds of festivities.
On selected dates, the concerts take place in the White-Gold Room, located in the main building of Schönbrunn Palace. In this intimate setting you can experience the musical performance up close!
We would like to inform you that there will be no ballet performance in the White-and-Gold-Room.
The White-Gold Room is situated on the ground floor of Schönbrunn Palace. With its white-and-gold-panelled walls and varying rocaille décor it is an outstanding example of Rococo craftsmanship from the era of Maria Theresa. During the restoration in the beginning of the 2000s, fragments of the original wooden flooring displaying an elaborate geometric pattern were discovered; the new floor was subsequently based on this historical model.
