Attendees included: Stephan Spazier, Deputy Austrian Trade Commissioner; Helene von Damm, former US Ambassador to Austria; Dr. Christine Moser, Director of the Austrian Cultural Forum; Alexander Muhr, CEO of Hallstein Water; and Elisabeth Muhr, Managing Director at ‎Hallstein Artesian Water.


This year the beloved event will be held at the newly refurbished Ziegfeld Ballroom under the auspices of the U.S. Austrian Chamber of Commerce. The Viennese Opera Ball is the oldest white tie charity gala in New York. It is known for prestigious guests who will travel from around the world to attend and waltz in the  magical grand ballroom.

Since 1955, the Viennese Opera Ball in New York has been a representative of Vienna’s cultural legacy, elegance, and glamour in the Big Apple. The Ball operates as a cultural platform and builds bridges to connect present day New York City with 19th Century Vienna, and people of varying heritages, continents and generations, to bring traditional glamour to the city that never sleeps.

Over 700 guests are expected to attend to watch 16 debutantes make their bow into society, while accompanied by their escorts in white-tie. The Ball Committees and Ball Beneficiary will be announced in mid-December. Tickets start at $600 and rise to $25,000 for a Diamond Tier table.
