Whatever Happened to the Waltz?

Whatever Happened to the Waltz?



A hotbed of vice, immorality, and social meltdown or a musical embodiment of gilded nostalgia and conservatism. The sounds of an empire at whirling play in Vienna or the final soundtrack to the end of a musical and political world order. Tom Service invites you to dance through history in three-time, and whirl through waltzes both wonderful and weird. With dance historian Darren Royston and dancing queen Katie Derham.
