Vienna Opera Ball

20th February 2020 | Vienna, Austria
Wiener Staatsoper Opernring 2 1010 Vienna

The Vienna Opera Ball is an annual Austrian society event which takes place in the building of the Vienna State Opera in Vienna, Austria. Together with the New Year Concert, the ball is one of the highlights of the Viennese carnival season. The tradition of the ball goes back to 1814 during the time when the crowned heads of Europe and the aristocracy searched for entertainment after the Napoleonic wars. The first ball in the opera house took place in 1877 as a soirée. The following balls were redoute, a French term for masquerade balls or costume parties, where the ladies wore their masks until midnight.
