Celebrate Valentine’s Weekend in ITALY – without ever getting on a plane!

 

The Embassy of Italy recreates the culture and romance of Italy, combining the Valentine’s Holiday with a special Valentine’s Ball  on February 16, 2019.

 

Your magical evening features:

Our setting fills the ballroom with Europe’s greatest classical pieces (including Mozart, Strauss, and Beethoven) as you waltz the night away in our beautiful 18th century setting.

A local Ballroom masterful instructor/couple will perform a special dance show highlighting the ballroom classics as danced for centuries in the balls at Piazza San Marco.


3) “Roméo et Juliette” OPERA PRESENTATION:

VERONA ITALY – the setting for perhaps one of the most beautiful and romantic operas ever performed – and you get an Italian soil center stage performance as the Act 2 balcony scene is recreated in the grand hall of the embassy.

Following this, you will move to the embassy’s auditorium for an optional presentation of a unique sampling of timeless romantic classics from the leading Opera houses of Italy.


4) LATE NIGHT DJ & DANCING:

In the last half of the evening, one of Washington, D.C.’s greatest D.J.s brings us the best in retro, swing and top 40 dancing – Italian style!

A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go towards the American Cancer Society.
