Russian dances have always been known for their luxurious decorations, exquisite costumes and refreshments. Alexander I’s ball during the Congress of Vienna in 1814-1815 impressed its participants with its unprecedented scale and unique charm. Paying tribute to that great epoch, the Russian charitable ball to commemorate 400 years of the Romanov dynasty is intended to revive the great tradition of Russian balls abroad. Up to 2,000 people are expected to attend the event.
In the official opening ceremony of the Ball are involved Royal Symphony Orchestra (UK) (conducted by Alfred Eschwe (Austria)); and Leading the Ball, the People's Artist of Russia Svyatoslav Belza.
The opening ceremony involves 50 pairs of debutantes, choreographed by the President of the Professional League of the Russian Dance Union, Leonid Pletnev.
