Philharmonic at the Library: A Night at the Vienna Opera Ball

Each year, the famed Vienna State Opera is transformed into a lavish ballroom for the Vienna Opera Ball. The glamorous event sees thousands of international celebrities dance the night away in a tradition dating back to 1814. In this edition of Philharmonic at the Library, we celebrate the ball with selections from some of Austria's most famous 19th-century composers.
