Vienna's glitziest event of the year, the Opera Ball, kicked off on Thursday evening with some soccer legends taking to a dance floor instead of a soccer field.
Dancers and students of the Vienna Opera ballet opened the show with a "footballet" simulating goals, penalties, yellow cards and even an injury on a fake pitch, while footballs made from fragrant pink roses decorated the balconies in the sumptuous Opera house.
Tickets were a mere 230 euros and the private boxes cost a paltry 17,000 euros only.
