Desert Dream

June 12, 2019

2019 Gala Co-Chairs: Rana Florida and Rochelle de Goias

With rich architecture, ornate textures and enticing scents, Morocco sits at the very crossroads of culture, beautiful, redolent and diverse. Inspired by the warmth of the Sahara, the heights of the Atlas Mountains and the coastal port of Casablanca, The National Ballet of Canada invites you to journey with us to MAD HOT BALLET: Desert Dream.

An unforgettable night of dance, music, fashion and food, the annual gala is Toronto's premier event, raising over $1 million in support of the National Ballet artists, performances and community programmes. Join us at this year's MAD HOT BALLET and immerse yourself in the Desert Dream, where culture and ballet collide for a transcendent experience of the power of dance.

MAD HOT BALLET is The National Ballet of Canada’s signature fundraising event. Featuring a gala performance, special themed receptions and a gala dinner onstage, the annual gala evening attracts luminaries from the cultural, social, fashion and corporate spheres. Since MAD HOT BALLET was established in 2007, the National Ballet has raised a total of $13 million thanks to the generosity of sponsors, donors, volunteers and ticket buyers.
