Live broadcast from Vienna State Opera on ORF 2 starting at 9:45 pm (GMT+1) tonight. And again the next day, also on ORF 2, at 10:25am.
If you don't have ORF2 on cable, try google something like "orf2 live stream". It usually works.

French maestro Georges Pretre, 87, and Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu will provide the artistic openers at this year's Opera Ball, the highlight of Vienna's ball season, organizers said today.
For the 56th time, the Vienna Opera will host the creme de la creme of Austrian society on February 16 for a night of waltzing and socialising.
