  • Description

    Vienna's Shrovatide carnival reached its high-point Feb 9, with a Spectacular ball at the State Opera House.

    Over 14,000 carnations were used to decorate the interior amid the dazzle of spotlights, chandeliers and full-length evening dress of the ladies.

    Presiding over the Society was Austrian President Adolf Schaerf. Members of the Diplomatic Corps gave the evening an international flavour. The Vienna Company provided a traditional one : waltzing to "The Blue Danube," played by seven orchestras.
