"There are many other activities preferable to do on a weekend evening than go to a white-tie Viennese Opera Ball....But, surprisingly, the ballroom at the Waldorf Astoria was packed to the gills Friday with men in formal dress and debutantes in white gowns and tiaras for the 56th Viennese Opera Ball. Many of them had spent several evenings last week learning box steps to perform for the tables full of what the program called 'transplanted Austrians' celebrating Austrian traditions 'with many of their international friends.'"
