Masquerade Ball 2016
The best from past and present
Great stories have been written about the mythic Masquerade Balls: nights of debauchery fostered by the masks that hid the identity of the attendees, a soiree reserved to the elite society and in which, behind the elegance of the gala dresses, the flirt and secretiveness, were the real protagonists. They are an ode to what’s forbidden, the eternal game of seduction and mystery. Oscar Wilde said that "the only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it”.
History writes that “the ball of the century” took place in Palazzo Labia in Venice on the 3rd of September 1951. Too many years holding this recognition, it was time to dethrone its host, Carlos de Beistegui. Last January 28th Circulo del Liceo, hand in hand with Trovel, did it. This event put Barcelona as a world reference with the second edition of the Masquerade Ball.
Love is and always will be a synonym of desire, intense physical and emotional attraction. The differences over time? The cavalier nowadays goes in search of his beloved one at the speed of wind, riding the 800 horses of the unstoppable Tramontana.
We still dance to the music that makes us vibrate. Live music today is combined with the magic that DJs add when controlling the latest tech systems when it comes to sound and special effects.
Of course, a memorable night wouldn’t be complete without an irresistible gastronomic setting to delight the senses along with an abundant selection of the most exclusive beverages to quench thirst and uninhibit every soul witnessing and living the best celebration of the XXI Century.
