Gala dinner, champagne lounge in the Spiegelsaal, salsa after midnight, and some arias.

Great night at the opera house!

9.30pm

Whistling concert at the ball.

Google Translate:
Zurich opera director Andreas Homoki opened the opera ball on Saturday evening with the call "Alles Walzer!". And the Zurich Noblesse proved that she can come quite Viennese if she wants to. Red carpet, gala dinner from Baur au Lac (lobster rillette and Osciètre pearls), champagne and charming chitchat. And of course waltz.

Nearly thirty pairs of debutants danced the Gypsy Quadrille (Pantalon) by Johann Strauss (Sohn), as they had learned in the dance school Kaiser. Another extraordinary encounter did not take place in the limelight: Katja Wünsche, the ballerina's ballet dancer, approached a man sitting at the table of honor and asked for an autograph. "Who is that?", Most of the women whispered, which made most of the men stunned: It was the former German footballer Otto Rehagel, who made the European champions as coaches in 2004.

The request of the starter

But just before, the devil was gone. The Welsh bass baritone Bryn Terfel powerfully sang Mefistofele's "Son lo spirito che nega" from Arrigo Boito's opera of the same name - and when he started whistling loudly, as the composer intended, many of the guests were startled ,
But then the star singer called on the audience to whistle, and this was not long ask. The following Pfeifkonzert is probably the loudest in the history of the opera house. The happiest thing anyway, was not preceded by a premiere that had failed. A woman is hoping that the Zurich opera audience has at least booed for a day: Simone Young, who led the performances as conductor of the Philharmonia, namely this Sunday evening back in action: She conducts the premiere of Parsifal.

Double happiness

Although the debutants are one of the highlights of the Zurich Opera Ball, other young people were also the focus of attention. The benefit of the charity event flows into the education program of the opera house, which wants to familiarize children and young adults with opera and ballet with special offers.
And then there is an extraordinary lucky guy to mention, which, however, remains nameless here. He was called when the first of the five major wins was drawn - let's call him Hans in Luck. The winner of the second major win was Hans - in luck.
