Save the date: Venice’s spectacular Doge’s Ball on 1 March 2025

By Friday, 17 May 2024 11:32

The 32nd edition of the Doge’s Ball will be staged on 1 March 2025 in the spectacular setting of the Scuola Grande della Misericordia, a majestic historic building in Venice’s Cannaregio district. 

A confidential rate for the trade 

The doges were the rulers of the Venetian Republic in Medieval and Renaissance days, and each year the Cannaregio venue, which can be reached both by land and water, by water taxi or - for the most romantic of arrivals by gondola - becomes a new and different stage, reminiscent of the magnificence of the Doge’s court. The opulent sets and decorations for the Doge’s Ball gala evening are designed for each edition by its founder, patron and host Antonia Sautter who told us that many bookings have already been confirmed for next year's highly anticipated new edition.  “There is a confidential rate for the trade for both ticket purchases and costume hire, and bookings can be made on our website or by calling our offices.” 

“Private tables are available for the gala dinner” 

The event lasts the space of one night, starting at 8.30 p.m. when the first guests enter to attend the grand opening show, and it continues into the early hours of the morning. The gala dinner at the Doge's Ball show comprises four courses, accompanied by prestigious wines and rivers of champagne. The tables are many and varied, with large imperial tables alternating with smaller round tables. “Tables are generally shared,” said Antonia Sautter,- because the Ballo del Doge is also about sharing and networking, but private tables can also be reserved.”

Dancing and an after-dinner event

While the main show is at its climax upstairs, there is dancing on the ground floor with DJ sets and further performances. The after-dinner is included with the full ticket or can be purchased separately for those who cannot attend the whole evening, but still want to soak up the atmosphere of Venice’s spectacular Doge’s Ball.

The sumptuous costumes can he hired or purchased

For those attending the evening, the first step into the world of the Doge’s Ball is a dress rehearsal. This is the magical moment when guests choose the perfect outfit from among the more than 1,500 costumes Antonia Sautter has designed and made over the past 30 years. “These are unique pieces from every era and style, and they are available for hire and also for sale, along with accessories like iconic tricorn hats, large wigs, sumptuous headdresses, fans and sticks…you name it.” The Ballo del Doge is truly a night-to-remember, an experience that will leave lasting memories of Italy’s magical lagoon city, its traditions and its timeless beauty.
