Austria's most viewed concert event outfitted by Vivienne Westwood
According to the media measurements of ORF (broadcaster owned by the Austrian government), the annual 'Neujahrskonzert' at midmorning after New Year's Eve is the most viewed concert event worldwide. In 2014, the collaborative production with the music ensemble 'Wiener Philharmoniker' will be broadcasted live (around 80 countries) with footage of performances by dancers of the state ballet in costumes by Vivienne Westwood on 1 January at 11.15. The dancers were filmed at Palais Liechtenstein in Vienna some months before the live concert. Photos from the making-of went public via APA (together with the results of media measurements) on 1 October 2013.
