A White Tie, Long Gown & Tiara Charity Gala

The Viennese Opera Ball, an annual white tie charity gala celebrates the cultural and economic relationships between Austria and America, connecting two continents, two cities and two centuries in one glamorous night. It was founded by Austrians immigrating to the United States more than 62 years ago, and is a tribute to both their former home town Vienna and their new host city, New York.

Considered the most prestigious and oldest Viennese ball outside of Vienna, the gala draws an international audience that includes diplomats and dignitaries, international corporations and professionals. Performances by Metropolitan opera singers, a renowned Viennese orchestra, ballet dancers, the West Point color guard, the midnight Quadrille and many more surprises contribute to a glamorous and delightful night.

Each year, the Viennese Opera Ball supports charitable projects connected to the communities in New York and Vienna.

The 63rd Viennese Opera Ball will take place on Friday, February 2, 2018  at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City and the proceeds will benefit the music therapy program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with the support from Gabrielle‘s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research.

The Viennese Opera Ball, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is hosted under the auspices of
the U.S. Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
