Experience a Viennese tradition, without the nine-hour plane ride.

The Vienna Music Film Festival, a two-month long outdoor classical music and opera event in the Austrian capital, comes to the city for one day this month, on Aug. 29 at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The park’s iconic skyline views were one of the main draws for festival organizers.

“We’re looking forward to providing a glimpse of what Austrian and European opera houses have been presenting within the last few years at such an astoundingly beautiful location,” said Ruth Pfletschinger, the executive director of the International Music and Media Centre, which is making its North American debut.

The evening will feature screenings of classical concerts and opera performances, including excerpts from “Carmen,” “Rigoletto,” “La Bohème,” and “Don Giovanni,” recorded at Austrian venues this past year. There will also be traditional Austrian cuisine, which pretty much begins with wienerschnitzel and ends with Linzer torte.
