Matt Brady, director of the Covent Garden Dance Company and founder of Ballet at Hatch House, has grown this unique summer event. What began as a single night with 160 guests in 2009 has become a stunning production, entertaining nearly 2,000 guests from around the globe each summer. For the first time in its 14-year history, Hatch House 2023 will span four nights this July, as it once again immerses guests in the dazzling world of ballet.
This year’s production will showcase the exceptional talent of present and future stars of the Paris Opera Ballet, including Valentine Colasante, Myriam Ould-Braham, Pablo Legasa, Guillaume Diop, Luna Peigné, and Michaël Lafon. They will be joined by Royal Ballet Principals Francesca Hayward and Cesar Corrales, Staatsballett Berlin Principal Ksenia Ovsyanick, and former Royal Ballet Principal Mara Galeazzi, among other notable international artists.
The walled garden will transport attendees to 1920s Paris, complete with a Café Folle serving Parisian cocktails, illuminated ‘twilight trees,’ and light art installations by special guest artist Hugo Dalton. As guests savour a gourmet supper hamper accompanied by exquisite fine wines, they will be treated to a mesmerizing mix of classical, neo-classical, and contemporary balletic and dance works, all infused with a French touch.
The magical evening concludes with the transformation of Café Folle into a Parisian speakeasy, featuring live performances from singer Faiith Lynch and encouraging guests to embrace the freedom of expression so iconic of the era.
