Vienna Opera Ball, 7 February 2013

The Vienna Opera Ball is the culmination and highlight of the Viennese carnival season. It is an Austrian society event hosted at the Vienna State Opera which is transformed into a giant ballroom with observation boxes, floral decorations, chandeliers and a beast of a dance floor.

The annual event regularly attracts glamorous celebrities and the glitterati. Former attendees include Dita Von Teese, Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson, Rosario Dawson, Joan Collins and Sophia Loren among many others.

As is tradition, the Vienna Opera Ball will be opened by the President of Austria Heinz Fischer. Shortly thereafter the debutante procession begins. Hundreds of couples fill the floor space, men in white gloves, black tuxedos with bowtie and tails and the women in white ball gowns and sparkling Swarovski tiaras, to engage in a spectacular synchronised Viennese Waltz.

Expect an evening of extravagance and opulence with lively musicians, exquisite cuisine and magnificent dance routines in a prestigious and beautiful setting.
