Wiener Opernball 2008

Netrebko OpernballVienna's 52nd Opera Ball featured a footballet and a performance by José Carreras. It was the first time Desiree "Desi" Treichl-Stürgkh organized the ball, which was attended by several football stars in honor of the European Championships to be held in Austria and Switzerland this summer. Other guests included Teri Hatcher, Dita von Teese, Bianca Jagger, and Anna Netrebko. According to Ö3, Dita, the guest of Richard Lugner, was well-behaved, looking more like Snow White than a stripper. She did not leave her box to waltz and departed just after midnight. Amusingly enough, Lugnar's ex wife was also in attendance.
