Washington, District of columbia

 

price: $89 for genearl admission; $142 for vip admission (each Member is allowed Maximum of two tickets) purchase by Friday, September 30th through https://reservations.ptos.org/index.php

 

 

DETAILS

ADMISSION TO THE MAIN GALA IS AT 8:30 PM

VIP ADMISSION IS AT 7:00 PM  

– The Majesty of Rome;
– The Glory of Florence; and especially
– The Beauty that is Venice

Tonight, travel thousands of miles away and hundreds of years in the past without ever leaving Washington, DC. In a rare opportunity, step on to Italian soil for a very special and elegant evening at the Embassy of Italy.

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, dancing, opera, film, and more!

This classic celebration has been one of the hottest tickets to attend in Italy for centuries. Tonight, we invite you to come masquerade style (optional) and dance as they did on the most elegant of dance floors and ballrooms boarding Piazza San Marco, the Piazzetta, the Ducal Palace, or in the Bacino.

All this – plus a portion of each ticket sale will benefit the American Cancer Society in memory of a former TTD staff member. (see below)

We are offering a VIP and GENERAL (Reduced) Admission package.

PROGRAM:

(VIP OPTION:  SEE BELOW – INCLUDES DINNER AND EARLY ADMISSION)

 

1) ITALIAN OPEN BAR: 

Toast to Venice and Italy all night long with fantastic Italian wines, beers and other (non alcoholic beverages).

 

2) ITALIAN DESSERTS: 

Experience a buffet of authentic Italian desserts. (An optional VIP reception is also available via this website which includes a private reception with exquisite buffet dinner of Italian delicacies).

DESERT MENU:

Cannoli
Cassata
Limoncello Cookies
Tiramisu
Individual Ricotta Cheesecake with almonds
Zabaglione Sauce with Berries
Fritelle alla Veneziane

 

3) VENETIAN  BALLROOM MUSIC (8:30  pm to 10:30  pm):

Tonight’s Ball will fill the room with Italy’s and Europe’s greatest classical ballroom treasures as you dance the night away in this unique, authentic setting.

 

4) VENETIAN BALLROOM DANCE PRESENTATION & LESSON: 

A masterful local Ballroom instructor/couple will perform a special dance show highlighting the ballroom classics as danced for centuries in the balls at Piazza San Marco .  Following the demonstration, our instructors will offer a brief ballroom lesson to keep you dancing the way Venetians danced for centuries.

 

5) OPERA PRESENTATION: 

The first opera was performed in 1600 at the wedding of Maria de Medici and Henry IV of France at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence. Since then, Italy has created much of the world’s greatest opera. From Monteverdi’s creations at the Teatro San Cassiano, to Rossini’s comic operas such as The Barber of Seville, to the new and rising opera pièces of the 21st Century, the standard for all opera originates in, and permeates, the Italian soul.

Tonight we present you with a unique sampling of timeless classics from the leading Opera houses of Italy. Two opera singers will be on hand for a live exclusive performance (from the Baroque, through the romantic period and to today).

 

6) MASQUERADE CONTEST: 

Note, while we will be in official Ball attire, for those who choose, we ask you to now wear your Venetian “mask” in a unique contest. Tonight, we will pick two winners (one male and one female). Winners will receive prizes.

 

7)  LATE 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!

 

8) WIN A TRIP TO THE CARIBBEAN: 

Participate in a drawing in which one lucky winner will win a trip to the Caribbean (Air and Hotel).

 

9) CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION:  In memory of a former TTD staff member, a portion of each ticket will be going to the American Cancer Society. For full details about the organization, see http://www.cancer.org/ .

Note: This is primarily a stand up, buffet style reception with limited seating throughout the evening. They will have limited tables and chairs, but will not be able to accommodate seating for all attendees at one time. If you have any special needs, please email kang.hu@uspto.gov in advance.
