Some of the world’s greatest ballet dancers gather at Desert Palm Dubai this month, as the Covent Garden Dance Company returns for a second year to perform Ballet Under the Stars.
The performance brings together some of the leading names from the greatest ballet companies on the planet, including the Royal Ballet’s Mara Galeazzi and The Royal Danish Ballet’s principal, Gregory Dean.
Galeazzi takes the lead at this two-night only spectacle on February 15 and 16, which will take place in Desert Palm’s 300-seat dinner theatre, created especially for the occasion under a giant canopy.
Set to the stunning backdrop of the resort’s landscaped gardens and polo fields, the ballet will take place during the course of an elegant gourmet dinner, with three acts of four scenes playing out during intervals between courses.
To be a part of this momentous occasion, all-inclusive dinner tickets start from AED 750 (US $204), including bubbly reception, three-course dinner and half a bottle of grape beverage per person. Platinum seats cost AED 850 (US $231) and premium seating costs AED 1,000 (US $272).
If you really want to make it a night to remember, Desert Palm Dubai is offering a special overnight package including accommodation in a suite or private villa, Platinum tickets to the ballet, three-course gourmet ballet dinner, and breakfast at Epicure from AED 2,700 (US $735) per night. Guests also receive additional perks including 15 per cent off LIME Spa treatments, 15 per cent off restaurants and bars, and priority early check in and late check out, not to mention the opportunity to enjoy a full day at this lush resort.
Arguably one of Dubai’s best-kept secrets, Desert Palm Dubai is worlds apart from the hubbub of downtown Dubai, and yet just 20 minutes drive from Dubai International Airport. Accommodation ranging from 45 sqm Deluxe Rooms to 205 sqm Pool Villas and the opulent 845 sqm Villa Layali are situated amid lush polo fields and handsomely manicured gardens, with a raft of local experiences and dining options on the doorstep.
