Johnny Vonneumann’s “An American in Europe” tells a story of an American being seduced, inspired, dazzled, and challenged, and eventually falls madly in love with the vibrant history of Europe. Johann Strauss’ The Blue Danube Waltz is the narrative spine of the romance. The story is told through an American visitor, exposing America’s beliefs, culture, dance, elegance, grit, ethics, joy and art as he embraces, Europe’s complex culture and vast history.
Which became the bedrock for the American dream.
