The “Night in Vienna” ball will be held for the 9th time at the National Museum for Women in the Arts on February 23, 2013. The anniversary gala is an opportunity to experience a magical evening in one of the most exquisite venues in Washington DC.
The museum’s grand Renaissance Revival building, elegant grand ballroom, and Mezzanine provide the perfect setting to bring to life the timeless elegance of a Viennese Ball, as experienced in Vienna.
As you enter the museum, you are greeted by a luxurious marble reception area, a ballroom adorned by three beautiful crystal chandeliers and art from the museum’s permanent collection. White marble staircases sweep upward to the spacious Mezzanine where the guests feast on champagne, Austrian wine, dinner and a dessert buffet in the Viennese tradition.
“Night in Vienna” offers the possibility for some serious people-watching, in particular the twirling silhouettes on the marble dance floor as they move to the sounds of the Salon Orchestra of Washington, one of Washington’s finest orchestras, performing the world’s favorite Strauss waltzes, ballroom music from around the world and the famous Radetsky Grand March.
Lessons in dancing the waltz are available from Herb and Carol Traxler at 7pm, just before the event.
