Conductors got their name by both guiding orchestras and wielding copper batons that deflect lightning away from the brass section. Behold an electrifying performance with this GrouponLive deal to see Salute to Vienna at Ruth Eckerd Hall. For $36, you get one ticket for seating in rows Y–DD on Monday, December 31, at 8 p.m. (a $72 value). Doors open at 7 p.m.

Salute to Vienna saves audiences the airfare to Austria with an evening patterned after Vienna's world-renowned Neujahrskonzert—a glittery New Year's Day cavalcade of classical music, arias, and dances. Budapest-based conductor Imre Kollar leads the Strauss Symphony of America into a selection of its namesake composer's waltzes before bringing down the house with The Blue Danube, the instantly recognizable, grandly swaying tune that has been used in everything from cartoon comedy to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Accompanying these perennials is a lively lineup of polkas and excerpts from classic Austrian operettas including Die Fledermaus and The Merry Widow. More than 75 musicians, European singers—including Austrian tenor Wolfgang Gratschmaier and Vienna Conservatory of Music–trained soprano Patricia Nessy—and dancers from Ukraine's Kiev-Aniko Ballet illuminate the stage with finely tuned harmonies and visual spectacle.
