In Austria, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the famous Vienna Ball was canceled. This is the second year that it has been canceled due to COVID-19, according to the Vienna Ball website.
“We have done our best to make the opera ball take place. But now the conditions are unfavorable, '' said the director of the Vienna State Opera, Bohdan Rosic.
According to him, this decision was influenced, in particular, by the emergence of a new strain of the Omicron coronavirus.
& quot ; Now, together with our committee, we will work on ideas for the Vienna Ball in 2023, '' Rosic added.
We note that Austria has extended the lockdown for another 10 days.
