GALA BANQUET IN THE WINTER PALACE, 29 JUNE 2019, SATURDAY

Published 19 May 2019

This year guests at the banquet will be invited to share the atmosphere of the Russian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, curated by the Hermitage. They will see the Hermitage architecture and the masterpieces from its collections which inspired Alexander Sokurov and Alexander Shishkin-Hokusai, the artists invited by the Hermitage to create the Pavilion. Among these are the five-meter high figures of Atlantes that support the famous portico of the New Hermitage building, great Flemish paintings, the Rembrandt Gallery, and the exotic mechanisms of the Peacock Clock. Temporary exhibitions will also be on show.

A lavish dinner in the Jordan Gallery and a ball in the Field Marshals’ Hall will echo the feasts mounted by the Serenissima, the Most Serene Republic of Venice. On leaving the Gala, guests will enjoy light music and a final drink in the Great Courtyard of the Winter Palace illuminated by the magic light of the White Nights.

Dress code: Black tie, ball gown
