Saturday, February 25, 2017, like the awakening of a sleepy theatre, the Doors of the Dream created by Antonia Sautter, will open again on the Canal Grande’s majestic Palazzo Pisani Moretta, to celebrate Venice and breath life into the 2017 Il Ballo del Doge: “Venezia is: so Splendid, so Magic, so Glam, so You!”
Carnival’s most coveted and renowned ball, a daydream wrapped in an exceptional artistic production, the event where each Guest will live an emotional fairytale. Il Ballo del Doge is all this and much more, a world-beating artistic event, a social happening, an unforgettable experience, a contemporary reinterpretation of the sumptuous banquets of Venetian nobility; all of this comes into being on the three different floors of Palace Pisani Moretta.
For the 2017 Ball, Antonia as producer and artistic soul of this international Gala, has put the spotlight on the city of Venice, celebrating its allure and tradition.
Venice is so Splendid. Under an incredible star-filled sky, the Splendor of the City reveals itself and celebrates the symbols of the Great Venice of History. Glorious and immortal; Queen of the Oriental Seas.
Venice so Magic. The spell-binding atmosphere of a living film set will enfold all its Guests! Music, theatre and dance at the highest level will steal them away from reality and transport them to the magic of the silver screen where each Guest will be the Star!
Venice is so Glam. Glam and Magic blended in a precious City, custodian of a timeless style that survives the passing of time and trends. Even if the world wants to change her, Venice will always remain true to herself.
Venice is so You! This is Venice. This is Il Ballo del Doge: Splendor, Magic and Enchantment … a city that both conceals and reveals the strength of her Past, her Present and her Tomorrow. Wonder of Wonders; she never ceases to amaze the world.
Kaleidoscopic scenery and surroundings will frame more than a hundred artistes bringing music, dance and magic to be your table-mates during a sumptuous dinner, especially conceived and prepared by chef Nicola Batavia, for years renowned on the haut cuisine international and national scene, chef patron of the Birichin and Egg Restaurants in Turin.
Vranken–Pommery champagne will glamorize the toasts of our Guests in the magic atmosphere of Carnival in a dream set to last all night long.
The Fondaco dei Tedeschi, the most exclusive location in Venice for unique shopping experiences by DFS Group will offer a bespoke precious casket enclosing a designer lipstick and a complementary elegant make-up brush to all the Ladies of the Ball.
Original and exclusive cocktails with Absolut Elyx Vodka, inspired by city of Venice, will enchant Guests in this extraordinary edition of Il Ballo del Doge.
“My Heart will beat faster, as always, until the very last moment, until the instant when the frenzied approach flows smoothly into The Ball, and we will float perfectly, suspended between sky and water, like the gondolas on the Venetian lagoon.” – Antonia Sautter
