The history and charm of Venice has fascinated us for centuries. A city of incredible beauty, dazzling light and hidden treasures, it is a veritable labyrinth of quiet alleys, bridges and canals cloaked in mystery.

Inspired by the seductive city of the masquerade, MAD HOT BALLET invites you to an atmosphere of dark beauty and an unforgettable evening of dance in support of The National Ballet of Canada.

MAD HOT BALLET begins with a performance of short works chosen specially for the occasion by Artistic Director Karen Kain, followed by signature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at a lavish reception. Gala dinner guests then take to the stage to dine with the dancers of the National Ballet and dance until the midnight hour.

Join the artists of the National Ballet for this signature fundraising event, expected to raise over $1 million in vital funding for Canada's premiere ballet company.
