Saturday, August 6th
6:00 – 10:00pm
Presented by The Social Concierge & Ballet BC
One of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World is reimagined in a contemporary style with Ballet BC. Welcome to Babylon, where dance is the universal language.
Botanical installations. Summer cocktails. Delectable cuisine.
Through the majestic gates and beyond the flourishing blossoms lives a place of magic and beauty. This summer, on Saturday, August 6th, Babylon’s hanging gardens await for a night of revelry, imagination and fantasy.
Join The Social Concierge, in partnership with Ballet BC, as we reshape the typical ‘evening at the ballet’ into an immersive, ethereal, one-night-only event. Transforming the iconic Queen Elizabeth Theatre Lobby and Plaza, we will guide you into an outdoor mythical sanctuary of stunningly lavish floral installations inspired by the great royal gardens of yore.
Reimagining the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the only Wonder of the Ancient World to never have been directly located, this inaugural festival will bring a multitude of local floral, landscape and event design talents together to create a showcase of colourfully stunning pavilions that set the stage for an unexpected evening of art in motion. The result: an immersive, multi-level environment made up of a collection of awe-inspiring and undeniably beautiful floral pop-ups where dance unfolds before you.
Paired with exquisite wines, botanical beverages and exceptional cuisine, this magically mesmeric experience will be an unparalleled summer experience.
