The Great Masked Ball
The Great Masked Ball, the world’s first immersive Swan Lake, arrives in London this July and August, and we’ve got free champagne for Just Opened readers.
While you may have seen the ballet in theatres and Black Swan in cinemas, The Great Masked Ball is set out to give you a whole new Swan Lake experience. Combining immersive theatre, dance, a live orchestra and masquerade ball into one glittering fairytale night, it’ll take you deep into the dark side of the fairy tale.
It’s a secret fantasy world, brought to you by an impressive group of artists. The 12,000 square foot world is built by Darling and Edge (designers for Planet Gingerline and Alice Underground Wonderland Bar), the 40-strong cast features musicians from the Royal Philharmonic and BBC Symphony, and Liam Riddick (Critics Circle male dancer of the year 2017) leading the dancers.
But we know Just Opened readers love a good night out, complete with dinner and drinks. So fear not, there’s a banquet designed by Masterchef Champion Tim Anderson, included in every ticket. It features smoked beef stroganoff, sharing platters, vegetarian/vegan options and sweet Russian treats, alongside a bar packed with fine wines and creative cocktails. Did we mention the after party until midnight? Yes, there’s that too.
If you think all of this sounds enthralling, you aren’t the only one – the experience is 98% sold out for July, but they’ve just released new tickets for August. And because we like giving Just Opened readers a special experience, you will receive a free bottle of champagne and reserved seating if you book 6+ tickets. All you need to do is forward the booking to [email protected] and quote Just Opened London.
