Johann Strauss Gala (dance)

Another larger-than-life showman follows Brendan Cole onto the Congress Theatre stage in January as Rainer Hersch will be bringing his Johann Strauss dancers and orchestra back to Eastbourne.

This year Rainer Hersch will again lead the Johann Strauss Dancers in a Johann Strauss Gala - waltzes and polkas to such music as the Blue Danube Waltz, Radetsky March, Skater's Waltz, Lucifer Polka, Emperor Waltz, Cuckoo Polka, Perpertuum Mobile, Il Bacio, Vilja from The Merry Widow and Roses From The South. The whole performance has again been directed and choreographed by Alexandra Worrall. The Orchestra will be joined by soprano Kristy Swift.
