that's what makes the Vienna Philharmonic so unique in that they play this concert with free admission. Btw, this years summer program is entirely dedicated to Wagner and Verdi - they would both have celebrated their 200th birthday this year.
here it's my 2 cents about the philharmonica: since admission is free you can expect loads of people showing up, which is why is wise to show up there before 8pm because otherwise it's almost impossible to get a good place as close to the stage.
here it's the program for this year's Vienna Philharmonic summer concert:
Giuseppe Verdi: Triumphal March from "Aida"
Richard Wagner: Prelude to "Die Meistersinger von NÃ¼rnberg"
Giuseppe Verdi: "La mia letizia infondere" from "I Lombardi"
Giuseppe Verdi: Dances from "Otello"
Richard Wagner: Prelude and Liebestod from "Tristan und Isolde"
Giuseppe Verdi: Overture to "Luisa Miller"
Richard Wagner: Grail Narrative from "Lohengrin"
Giuseppe Verdi: Overture to "La Forza del Destino"
Richard Wagner: Prelude to Act III of "Die WalkÃ¼re" (Ride of the Valkyries)
