Singing and Dancing Under Rain and Sun

Guro Kleven Hagen at Vienna festival May 14 2010

“Singing and Dancing under Rain and Sun”, this poetically beautiful romantic scene is not an imagination of a writer or journalist, but it is a part of the Austrian culture, of the culture of Vienna as a world capital of music and culture. The green nature, the mild weather, the heat, and the rainy summer in Vienna all made the Austrian capital Vienna a hub to attract fans and enthusiasts of art and culture from around the world.

The romantic scenes of a beautiful woman or an elderly one listening to music, then dancing under the showers can not be described in the words of a journalist or a writer. These are scenes which are only understood by art lovers, romantics and people who live or who spend a romantic summer in Vienna.

Peter Kraus am Rathaus - May 30 2010

In Vienna, the summer of this year began only about a week ago, but the festivals, cultural events, musical and artistic performances have been active since mid-May in the open-air place in Rathausplatz, the square in front of the Vienna City Hall, in Karlsplatz, the square in front of Karlskirche, on the Donau Insel, the long island on the Danube, and many other green areas and parks which are everywhere in the city. These cultural events show once again that the federal capital Vienna lives up to its reputation. Top-class productions from the world of opera, ballet, music and jazz, which are all shown for free or a small fee every day after sunset and sometimes under showers of rain.

    to kawther salam
    I offer my hand
    cos she makes a stand
    for a higher plan
    stands for the truth
    with the goodness she use
    shouts out against abuse
    till the war makers lose
    a very brave girl
    in a messed up world
    thats soon to be hurled
    i will give her a twirl
    twirl her around
    the heart quickly pound
    with a heavenly sound
    from the stars to the ground
    an uplifting spark
    light through the dark
    in a dance through the park
    for her journalistic art

    thankyou kawther salam for your courage
    .may peace be upon you..
