Vibrant Vienna

A wonderful opera break

M & F T - London

Dear Andrew,

.....Suffice it to say, we again had a wonderful trip to which my stock of superlatives may not do justice.

The only downside was the utterly dire weather throughout: long faces everywhere amongst theViennese!
Nothing went amiss in the excellent arrangements confirmed by yourself. We found the hotel location fantastic and super-convenient, (including for the glorious music -- Mozart, Bach and Schubert -- onSunday at nearby St Stephens church.

Our room was spacious and well-appointed. The hotel staff were efficient, but also friendly and solicitous.

Hotel management is thoroughly professional, so there were none of the niggles about lack of attention to housekeeping details etcetera that slightly marredour stay in Berlin last year.

The seats were very good for both the Saturday nightperformance of La Cenerentola at Wiener Statsoper,and the Monday concert at Musikverein by the WienerMozart Orchestra -- the latter a bit 'pop classics' butwe expected that and in any case it was lively and lotsof fun.

Again many thanks for the excellent arrangements. Wethoroughly enjoyed every minute.
