HISTORY OF LE DINER ON BLANC
If you are going to go to our pop up performance you should know how it originated! In 1988 a Frenchmen named Froncois Pasquier invited a group of his friends to an outdoor dinner party in Paris. The requirements were simple. Wear formal white attire, be able to enjoy good food and even better company. Guests were expected to exhibit elegance and proper etiquette. He did not reveal the location of the event until the last minute and this tradition remains today. 27 years later, Diner en Blanc in Paris hosts 15,000 people annually! It can be found in over 50 cities spanning 5 continents! People actually travel from city to city and from country to country just to attend different Diner en Blanc events! We’re putting our own ballet spin on it, serving ballet as the main course.
