I read the other posts about attending operas at the Opera House and the dress code but was wondering if the same rules apply to non-opera events.
We were able to get tickets to see the Nutcracker during our upcoming trip and I am, as apparently are others, debating attire. I have a very nice cocktail dress that I know would be fine, but while shopping I also found a gorgeous floor length number that I am sorely tempted by.
I am of two minds, the first being that the one I have is very nice and suitable so I should just go with it. The other is "How many times in my life will I get to go to a performance at the Staatsoper in Vienna. Go for it!!"
So will there really be women in floor length gowns at a non-opera performance? I don't want to overcompensate on the formal side and stick out like a sore thumb.
I would appreciate any input you might have.
