Joshua Bell and Dance at Far Niente

Far Niente's legendary hospitality and magical setting provide the perfect backdrop for this evening of dance, and music inspired by dance.

The evening begins with a reception at Far Niente's Cabernet Grille. Who knows what musical surprises await guests as they are led through the garden and over an arched bridge into a nearby tent beside the property’s cultured pond?

Dance weaves through every element of the night. Joshua Bell performs music from his forthcoming "Dance of the Violin" recording. Flutist Maxim Rubtsov demonstrates why he is known as the quintessential Pied Piper. To cap it off, San Francisco Ballet principal dancers Vitor Luiz and Maria Kochetkova perform the world premiere of choreographer Yuri Possokhov’s new setting of the famed Adagio from the ballet Spartacus.

Far Niente's luxury estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, and a gourmet meal choreographed by Executive Chef Trevor Eliason, will set hearts dancing throughout the night.
