The evening commenced with honored guests arriving in a beautiful Unicorn-drawn carriage, and welcomed by royal fanfare with a trumpet announcing their arrivals. Dressed in intricately luxurious costumes arrivals walked a sprawling amethyst carpet, before mentally transporting to a mythical world. The elite were ushered into an intimate garden courtyard to first entice their minds and stimulate their senses. Upon entering the garden guests were met by The Angels of Venice; one sat strumming whimsical music on a harp, and a woman with a magnificent voice stood singing at her side.

As the sun departed and the moon took to its stage, guests were escorted into the Cathedral of St. Vibiana. Extraordinary ivory and marble columns lead to vaulted cathedral ceilings that created an unimaginable ambiance. The debonair Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Dammit took to the stage to officially welcome all and to introduce his entourage of performers. Esza Kaye performed with a sound which was a lush blend of human and machine, hypnotic and bright.
