Bruno Laplante, Mathilde Duval-Laplante and France Duval raise a glass with dancers and choristers to celebrate the music of the great Viennese waltz era.

Le Capitole theatre resembled a Viennese concert hall and ballroom on Nov. 30 for Les Valses de Vienne, Les Grands Airs Viennois.

Sixteen dancers, 24 musicians, eight choristers and three soloists filled the theatre with the music of Johann Strauss Sr., his sons Johann (the “Waltz King”) and Eduard Strauss, and other well-known composers of the era.
