In 1595, “Romeo and Juliet” turned the quiet little town of Verona Italy into one of the most romantic spots of the entire world. Tonight, Romeo and Juliet reappear in one of the most exciting venues in Washington, D.C. … and what better time to do this than during the Valentine’s Season!
Looking for plans for the holiday? Sure, you can fight reservations getting a special table. Of course, you can slave over your own stove making a home cooked romantic meal. Or, perhaps, you can celebrate Valentine’s Weekend in ITALY – without ever getting on a plane!
Tonight, we recreate the culture and romance of Italy, combining the Valentine’s Holiday with a special Valentine’s Ball – right here in our Nation’s Capital.

In addition, a portion of tonight's proceeds from each member will go towards the American Cancer Society.

As you enter this incredible and beautiful embassy, be transported to perhaps one of the most admired countries in Europe, experience an Italian evening filled with Italian food, open bar, live orchestra, late night DJ, dancing, opera, film, and more!

1. Live Ballroom Dancing
2. Ballroom Dance Presentation
3. "Romeo et Juliette" Opera Presentation
4. Late Night DJ & Dancing
5. Italian Food and Refreshments
