Beautiful women with shining eyes and worthy men have gathered in this square; love, friendship and romance are felt in every particle of the air. Art reigns here, which means life reigns here. The ball suits “Massandra” very much and suits Crimea very much, because it is the embodiment of what Crimeans know how to give to the world and what people really need – beauty, warmth and joy of life, — emphasizes the director of the II Crimean Opera Ball Ekaterina Grafodatskaya.

The Crimean Opera Ball in Massandra is airy and light, like champagne. The ball for us is not just a dance evening, it is joint creativity, healing with high art. It unites, gives worthy guidelines, reveals and emphasizes the best qualities of a person. This is, first of all, the joy of joint work and creativity, where not only the result is important, but also the very path that we go through on the way to it. Our ball teaches that perfection does not lie in perfection, but in the courage to move, to seek, in the constant movements of the soul, which become dance movements., — notes the artistic director, chief dance master of the II Crimean Opera Ball Dmitry Platov.
