Guests had opportunity to enjoy a captivating evening of dance music
Like the Opera Ball in Vienna, the Luxembourg Viennese Ball, has become a splendid fixture in the social calendar. The popularity and status of this Luxembourg event, organised to benefit charitable causes, can be ascribed to the attractiveness of Vienna as a metropolis on the Danube, and the close ties and excellent relationship between the Grand Duchy and the Austrian Republic.
Opportunity to enjoy a captivating evening of dance music, both classical Viennese and more modern melodies, had guests this March 16th.
They could have experience all the highlights of the Ball; the ceremonial entry and dance shows of the debutante committee followed by the “Alles Walzer!”, and the traditional midnight interlude.
The Vienna Opera Ball, which was first held in the Austrian capital in the 19th century, is considered to be the major social event of the Alpine republic. In Luxembourg, for the 16th time, good-humored guests – including many debutants – danced in fine robes until late at night. Entertainment was provided by, among others, the Austrian soprano Diana Kantner, who performed an aria by Rossini and two Viennese songs, as well as the Luxembourg dancer Ludivine Brangbour with her dance partner Mateusz Kieszek.
The motto of the event this year was „Danse avec ‘Les roses de la nuit'” – the ball was organized in collaboration with the Patrimoine Roses pour le Luxembourg, which is committed to preserving the heritage of Luxembourg rose breeding.
