Although the opera ball doesn't take place until Thursday, the parade of celebrities begins on Wednesday. Richard Lugner presented his guest this year, Priscilla Presley, at a press conference.
Press conference and autograph session
In good spirits and dressed in black, Presley appeared in Luckner City shortly before 12 p.m. “I can't complain, everyone is so nice. “Mr. Luckner arranged everything for me very well,” she begins. How she likes Vienna so far: “I want to stay longer, there's a lot of history here.” The actress had already visited Vienna's city center on Tuesday and visited St. Stephen's Cathedral and the Mozart House.
Luckner and Presley joke around together and get along well. Despite language barriers, Presley tries to mediate between journalists and liars. She's also happy with her new name, “Priscilla,” given by Lukner: “It's really funny.”
This evening the 78-year-old wants to visit the exhibition of the artist Gottfried Helnwein: “I am happy, he is a good friend of mine.”
The master builder reveals that Presley wants to stay at the opera ball until one in the morning. Your flight home departs at 6:55 a.m. on Friday. Before he returns to his hotel, the 78-year-old likes to dance.
Presley doesn't know much about the traditional event: “I know everybody loves it. I'm happy to be a part of it tomorrow.” The 78-year-old is a night owl and likes to stay up late, he reveals with a laugh. Liar, on the other hand, likes to go to bed earlier.
The 91-year-old is looking forward to tomorrow's opera ball. He is very happy with his guest: “She is very easy to take care of, beautiful and the best guest I have ever had.”
These are Richard Luchner's most amazing guests
After the press conference, Presley will hold an autograph session at Luckner City from 1 p.m. No further meetings with Elvis Presley's ex-wife are currently scheduled. At 3 p.m., singers Heino and Boucher invite you to the Hotel Le Méridien. According to manager Helmut Werner, a “one-off campaign” is planned here.
The “Harald Glööckler Trilogy” begins at 1:30 in front of the Grand Hotel with a “Glööckler in Peace” champagne reception to the setting of the “Flame of Peace”, of which the designer is ambassador. We continue in the Bösendorfer Salon with a classical concert under the motto “Glööckler of Oz”. Finally, at “Glööckler at Tea Time”, tea is served by our very own sommelier.
