Package Details

Witness history in the making at the prestigious premiere of the Dresden Opera Ball in St Petersburg this summer with Hotel Astoria. It’s the first time the traditional annual Semper Opera Ball has ever left Dresden, and it’s chosen Russia’s capital of culture – its sister city since 1961 – as the destination for its maiden voyage. 

St. Petersburg’s grandeur is inimitable. Spend the day admiring vast palaces, soaring cathedrals and immaculate gardens, before heading back to a warm Russian reception at the Astoria Restaurant, where Executive Chef Marius Ackermann will craft a 5-course menu dedicated to the Ball. Then, get settled into your room or suite at Hotel Astoria. This landmark’s palatial architecture and exceptional service combine to create an exclusive, elegant atmosphere, and its thoughtful amenities ensure an easy and comfortable night’s sleep.

For the Dresden Opera Ball’s grand opening gala, you’ll be transferred to the Neoclassical Mikhailovsky Theatre. Here, the red carpet leads to a star-studded programme of world-class opera, to be watched by thousands outside on a screen on the square but by a privileged few inside. After the performance, continue to the Grand Hall of the St Petersburg Philharmonic for dancing, and mingle with St. Petersburg’s polite society to ring in St Petersburg’s newest summer tradition.

  • Dinner at the Astoria Restaurant on 30th August 2019
  • 2-night stay at Hotel Astoria, including breakfast in Astoria Restaurant
  • Return transfers to and from the Dresden Opera Ball on 31st August 2019
