NUIT BLANCHE:AT THE OPÉRA GARNIER
Bellevue House, Bellevue Ave., Newport RI
Patrons entered a lantern-lit garden, with live performances occurring unexpectedly among the allées, follies and ornamental pools of the Bellevue House gardens. A performance happening led the crowd into the glowing tent, where a short live auction raised funds for the Island Moving Co.’s educational programs. New York’s Tin Pan Band provided the music for dancing until midnight. The entire event evoked the magical Nuit Blanche in the City of Lights, during which Paris is alive with performance and music all night long.
Stay tuned for details on next year’s party of the summer!
