Fundraising Gala: The Bolshoi Ball

Saturday Evening, February 4, 2017
Portland Art Museum

The restoration, a balance between contemporary upgrades and returning the theatre to its original, fantastical décor, is said to give one the feeling of sitting inside a Fabergé Imperial Egg. In effect, this iconic home to the renowned Bolshoi Ballet, is old, yet delightfully new again. More Details
