With the inauguration of The Theatre Ball, SRT is adding another level of entertainment to Singapore's cultural landscape. A costumed ball and an annual tradition, we hope to give revelers a chance to put on a costume and let loose with the celebrations.
This year's Theatre Ball was called Carnevale di Venezia, themed around the Venetian carnival in Italy, which is undoubtedly the most famous masquerade ball of all time.
Corum Swiss Timpieces was the Presenting Sponsor and the night kicked off with a showcase of Corum's watches. Guests turned up in full force, all decked out in their best Venetian costumes and beautiful masks.
Sketches and scenes reminiscent of the Commedia dell'Arte, serenades and popular Italian melodies performed by Dick Lee, stilt-walkers, acrobats and scrumptious Italian fare all led to an amazing night that was the talk of the town.
