Schwindfoyer at the Wien Staatsoper

The Viennese tradition is to have Strauss’ Fledermaus performed on december 31st, this shot was taken just a few minutes before Act II (I guess all the audience was back at their seats, or already at prince Orlofsky’s party).  This was a great way to start 2012, so wishing everyone a happy new year, or Prosit Neujahr as they say in Vienna !
