On the evening of December 28, a particularly snowy Friday, the elegant Petrovsky Passage hosted the BoscoCeremony soiree. Only those in possession of an individual invitation in a purple envelope and writing by a professional calligrapher could gain admittance to the celebration.
Mikhail Kusnirovich met the guests in front of the New Year tree. The list of guests was impressive: Xenia Sobchak, Sati Spivakova, Ingeborga Dapkūnaitė, Ksenia Solovieva, Ildar and Marika Abdrazakovs, Alexander Tsypkin, Elena Vesnina, Mark Tishman, Ekaterina Shipulina, Alexey Yashin, Marina Zudina with her daughter Masha, Andrey Gnatyuk, Pavel Kogan, Mikhail Broitman, Tamaz Manasherov.
To the accompaniment of live music, guests enjoyed a festive aperitive by Bosco Café chef Davide Corso.
A strict dress code was instituted for the soiree: men were to be dressed in tuxedos, dress suits, and extravagant jackets, while ladies appeared in evening wear with sequins and feathers. The soiree was dedicated to the BoscoCeremony space. Many of the guests found themselves the right clothes at BoscoCeremony beforehand. For example, Xenia Sobchak appeared in an Elie Saab dress, Ingeborga Dapkūnaitė – in a Safiiya dress, Elena Vesnina – in a set of snow-white Max Mara overalls, Ekaterina Shipulina – in a total look by Elie Saab, Ksenia Solovieva – in an elegant dress by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. The male guests were also wearing clothes from BoscoCeremony: Ildar Abdrazakov was dressed in a tuxedo by Pal Zileri, Alexander Tsypkin – in an Etro suit and Il Tabarro cape with a cane and a top hat, hockey player Alexey Yashin – in a tuxedo by Tombolini with a Pasotti cane and an elegant top hat.
The guests moved from Bosco Café to Floor 2 of Passage, to the new space of BoscoCeremony. In the bright shine of lighting, guests enjoyed a festive photo session and were presented with the main surprise of the evening: tickets to the Bolshoi production of The Nutcracker. The guests were transported from Passage to the Bolshoi by Yandex Ultima cars. The Bolshoi is always luxurious and grand. Many people dream of seeing the legendary production on New Year’s Eve. For the third time, friends of BoscoFamily are afforded the opportunity to see The Nutcracker at the Bolshoi. Miracles do come true on New Year’s Eve, if one believes hard enough!
