Let yourself be enchanted by the splendor and incomparable atmosphere of the legendary imperial court ball. Every year Emperor Franz Joseph invited his court to the splendid halls of Schönbrunn Palace to this celebration, the absolute pinnacle of the season.
We stage your prestigious congress opening, your special company event or your exclusive gala dinner in the style of the legendary imperial court ball where you and your guests are the focal point of a very special celebration. Our "royal couple", resplendent in historically accurate costumes, Emperor Franz Joseph in his red and white full dress and Sissi and her famous white "star" gown, are your personal hosts.
The entrance of our "royal couple" is announced in style by the Herald Trumpets in renaissance costumes. Once Emperor Franz Joseph has bid his guests welcome and the appetizer from our "imperial kitchens" has been served, the master of ceremonies in baroque costume introduces the Viennese Ladies Orchestra Johann Strauss. In the presence of the emperor and empress, who have befittingly taken their places on stage upon two red and gold thrones, the ladies offer an approx. 25 minute program with musical highlights by the waltz king Johann Strauss, jr. as well as the master composers W.A. Mozart, Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms and Jacques Offenbach.
The highlight of our program follows the main course. During the original waltz show by Dance Formation Viennese Waltz, your guests will experience the Viennese lifestyle in 3/4 time to the sound of the Blue Danube Waltz. Then the "royal couple" will personally open the "Imperial Ball" and put their dancing abilities to the test to the strains of the Emperor Waltz. Your guests will be personally invited to waltz by the dancers of Dance Formation and thereby experience the Viennese court ball atmosphere. This special evening comes to a close with the Radetzky March by Johann Strauss, sr. as Emperor Franz Joseph and Sissi retire to their chambers.
The splendid costumes, a show especially staged to suit your guests and in harmony with both your chosen venue as well as the official supporting program, guarantee you an unforgettable evening.
