Vienna Opera Ball 2019

The Vienna Opera Ball (German: Wiener Opernball) is an annual Austrian society event which takes place in the building of the Vienna State Opera in Vienna on the Thursday preceding Ash Wednesday (a religious holiday).

Only slightly following the dress code of the event, Conchita Wurst attended the ball at the invitation and at the side of the Austrian Justice Minister Josef Moser (ÖVP) in a white dress and with a bald head.

Conchita said she wanted to use the Opera Ball to call for people to vote in the EU elections in May 2019, because the concept of Europe is extremely important.
