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 64 years ago, and is a tribute to both their former home town Vienna and their 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, the West Point color guard, 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 Viennese Opera Ball, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is hosted under the auspices of
the U.S. Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
