Where:

Beau Rivage Palace, Lausanne

A contemporary Ball is an event with a unique format. In the luxurious interiors of the legendary Beau-Rivage Palace, live music will sound, inviting guests to join in with polonaise and mazurka. Anything is possible at the Ball: sumptuous evening gowns, champagne between a quadrille and a waltz, gourmet dinner, and a starry performance. A Ball is the very heart of high-society tradition. And now, as in the 19th century, in the ballroom the wonders of social intercourse still happen: from a pleasant friendly chat to serious business deals, and – who knows! – even marriage proposal!

Charitable
auction

Charity has always been an integral part of the grand balls held in Imperial Russia. Treasures of Russia also re-enacts this important part of a classic high-society gala. In 2021, the ball will be held in partnership with two Russian charity foundations: 100 percent of the money raised at the auction, and all direct donations from guests, will be donated to them.

Established in 2008 by famous actors. The foundation supports Russian cultural figures that have run into hard times, as well as the elderly, the destitute, and the sick.

Established in 2004 to support children with various illnesses. The Foundation brings health and joy of life back to thousands of Russian children.

The highlight of any ball is its dance program. Mazurkas, waltzes, and quadrilles will be brought to life by a show band. Guests will be able to join in every dance, experience the atmosphere of a classical ball, and actively participate in it. Even if you’ve never danced before, you will enjoy it to the fullest. It is recommended that you come in couples, but even if you do not have a partner, we will try to fit you into a duet.
