“EVERYBODY WALTZ“ – at the Vienna Opera Ball the Dress Code for Men is Evening Wear


With up to 12,000 visitors the Vienna Opera Ball is one of the top events of the ball season. It does not only attract debutants but also many notables from Europe or even the United States.

The tradition of this opera ball dates back to 1814/15 when the Congress of Vienna was held. An opera ball at today’s location – the building of the Vienna State Opera – was first held on 11th December 1877. A ball with a fine tradition. The first ball under the name Vienna Opera Ball took place in 1935 to raise money for charity.

Traditionally, the Vienna Opera Ball is opened by some 180 dancing couples. After the sound of the command “ALLES WALZER” (Everbody waltz) the dancing floor is open for all guests of the Opera Ball. Since the 90s the Opera Ball again and again causes a sensation with the celebrity guests of Richard Lugner, an Austrian constructor.

The list of celebrities who have had a seat in his loge – which is anything but cheap – is long. It includes Ivana Trump, Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson, Dita von Teese and more famous people.

The Vienna Opera Ball will be held again on 8th February 2018.

Dress code: white tie

At the Vienna Opera Ball the strict dress code is white tie and tails for men – alternatively they may also wear a dress uniform – no other outfit is allowed. All female guests are requested to wear a floor-length gown. The evening tailcoat (of course made by WILVORST) is the king of formal wear: timeless, male, precious – the official attire for very formal occasions.

Rule of thumb: The evening tailcoat is best worn after 3 pm or even better after nightfall. If the invitation says “White Tie” you are requested to wear an evening tailcoat, e.g. at very elegant weddings, balls, festive premieres, state banquets or receptions of European Royal Families.

When you wear your evening tail suit you should observe some rules of styling and matching of all parts of your evening dress. The classic tail coat is complemented with a white, very low-cut piqué waistcoat, a matching white full dress shirt with a stiffened piqué front as well as a white piqué bowtie. The look gets perfect with classic, black patent leather shoes. The highlight of the attire is the top hat. The top hat is the appropriate headdress for very formal occasion together with an evening tail suit, mostly it is collapsible (French: Chapeau Claque). It has become fashionable already in the first half of the 19th century.
