A night in Vienna

Recently I was lucky enough to be sent to Austria by the Daily Telegraph on an assignment to shoot a feature on the Vienna Opera Ball , an annual Austrian society where tickets can cost from €270 to more than €20,000 euros .

After a ballet performance nearly 200 debutantes and their partners dance the opening waltz in front of the Viennese elite and a smattering of A list celebrities, after this the dance floor opens up to a predominantly middle aged crowd who dance into the early hours to renditions of everything from Mozart to Barry Manilow .
