Michael Ludwig, the Mayor Of Vienna says, “Vienna, the world capital of music, invites you to indulge in the city’s unique spirit again for a truly memorable evening following the two year break due to the pandemic. During the age of Viennese Classicism alone, the city inspired outstanding composers like Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven and their world-renowned music. The Austrian capital city has become equally famous as the international capital of dance and Viennese ball tradition. Everywhere in the world, people mark the start of the New Year with the legendary Blue Danube Waltz and signature dance tunes written by the members of the Strauss dynasty. Thanks to their unique music, and an atmosphere imbued with the distinctive spirit of Vienna, the traditional Viennese Balls abroad have become major international events.
Finally, our guests in Dubai will get to hear “Alles Walzer!” – the traditional prompt for the crowd to take to the dance floor at the annual Opera Ball in Vienna. With the legendary Viennese Balls, the City of Vienna shares its life-affirming spirit of friendship and ease with the entire world. It is a symbol for joy, peace and international understanding.”
