The earliest Viennese Opera Balls can be traced to the late 18th century and reached their zenith in the brilliant balls and receptions held during the 1814 Congress of Vienna. They were commemorated in history with the observation that "The Congress didn't sit, it danced."

Today, the Viennese Opera Ball remains an international social landmark. The January 2008 Ball in New York will mark the 53rd consecutive Viennese Opera Ball held under the auspices of the U.S.-Austrian Chamber of Commerce. Founded by Austrian immigrants, the U.S.-Austrian Chamber of Commerce continues to support the business and commercial interests of the U.S.-Austrian community. The establishment of the non-profit Viennese Opera Ball in New York became the perfect way of preserving the memory of the Vienna and the culture that they loved.
