Official announcement:


A Celebration of Disney Classics – featuring ALAN MENKEN


Dear »Hollywood in Vienna« fans!


A year into a pandemic with new challenges, changes, and unprecedented circumstances, we were full of optimism about leaving the corona crisis behind us, in order to celebrate “Hollywood in Vienna” with you once more in September 2021.


Unfortunately, the pandemic remains omnipresent, events are still not permitted, theatres and concert halls remain closed, and travel is often difficult or even impossible. Not least due to the delayed progress of the vaccine rollout, we regrettably expect that normality will not have returned by autumn, that we will still not be allowed to open the Konzerthaus auditorium to 100% of its capacity, and that travel restrictions will continue to hinder the participation of artists and audiences.


These persisting obstacles on so many levels, not to mention the protection of all our health, which we consider to be our top priority, unfortunately leave us no choice but to postpone the concerts scheduled for 2021, in consultation with Alan Menken himself, by yet another year to September 2022.


Please rest assured that Alan Menken and we, in close cooperation with Disney, are already working on the »A Celebration of Disney Classics« show for 2022 with great enthusiasm. Thus, we are even more excited by the prospect of celebrating our gala concert next year, featuring Alan, Arielle, Belle, Hercules, Rapunzel, and – of course – you! One thing is a certainty: it will be a truly magical event!


Alan sends you his regards in the video below and hopes, that we will see each other in Vienna very soon.


Your tickets and VIP- and Premium packages for the original dates remain valid for the new dates (as was the case with the last postponement) and do not need to be exchanged.


We wish you all good health and much strength in continuing to cope with the ongoing health crisis. We are really looking forward to 2022!


Yours truly,


Sandra Tomek, Christian Pöttler, Michael Balgavy, the entire “Hollywood in Vienna” team, and all cooperation partners”
