Tradition

The tradition of the Vienna Opera Ball (Opernball) dates back to 1877 when Emperor Franz Joseph I deemed that ballrooms be inclusive of the wider community and that their events be an impetus for economic and tourist growth. Since then, hundreds of balls are hosted across Austria every year, but the Vienna Opernball is considered to be the social highlight of the season. Attended by royalty, dignitaries, socialites, and celebrities, the Opernball epitomizes the luxury, elegance and distinguished culture of Vienna.

Glamour from the days of old combined with renowned artists and invited guests, make the Vienna Opera Ball a spectacle to behold. Today it remains one of the most sought after tickets in the world.
