In Jules Verne's novel “Around the world in 80 days” the eccentric British traveler Phileas Fogg bets 20,000 pounds if he successfully completes his travel around the world in 80 days.

 

The Classic Consort Vienna follows his route, and wherever Mr. Fogg and his servant Passepartout make a stop, the ensemble performs the music related to the respective country:

from London on to Brindisi, Suez, Aden, Mumbai, Calcutta, Hong Kong, Shanghai via Yokohama, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Dublin and back to London ...

 

Enjoy an evening full of wonderful and exotic music, exciting adventures & humorous entertainment

 

 

„[…] “A true Englishman doesn’t jest with something as serious as a wager,” Phileas Fogg replied. “I’ll bet 20.000 Pounds against anyone that I’ll travel around the world in 80 days or less - that would be 1920 hours or 115.200 minutes. Do you take the bet?”

The gentlemen conferred among themselves for a moment and then all called out in unison, “We take it!”

“Done!” said Phileas Fogg. “It’s on! The train to Dover leaves at a quarter before nine. I will be on it.”
