    Ballroom is an adjective modifying dance

    Eighteenth is an adjective modifying century

    Composer is a noun (predicate nominative)

    Vienna is the object of the preposition "in" and a proper noun

    Capital is an adjective modifying city. If it had been used alone (without city), it would have been a noun.
