Details

Dominique Meyer and Lois Lammerhuber created a book for the Vienna Opera Ball each year – the so-called ‘gentlemen’s ball gift’. Each book was dedicated to a facet of the Wiener Staatsoper as a complete work of art: PASSION dealt with the Wiener Staatsoper Orchestra, [E]MOTION with the Wiener Staatsballett, GLAMOUR with the costume workshops, ON STAGE with the stagehands, HARMONY with the ensemble of the Wiener Staatsoper, GENESIS with the creation of a premiere, CHORUS with the Wiener Staatsoper Choir, REPERTOIRE with the repertory of the Wiener Staatsoper and BEL CANTO with the singers of the 150-year history of the Wiener Staatsoper. This photo book is an homage to the house on the Ring and includes Lois Lammerhuber’s favourite images from 10 years of collaboration.

Ink pen drawings by Kammersänger Benedikt Kobel, tenor and member of the Staatsoper ensemble, illustrate special moments from the seasons under Dominique Meyer’s directorship.
