Since its inception in 1965, the Petroushka Ball has been one of New York's most vibrant and elegant Russian-American events. We are thrilled to announce that the Metropolitan Opera star and Honorary Director of RCWS, soprano Anna Netrebko will appear at 2013 Petroushka Ball.  For the past two years, Anna has had the honor of opening the Metropolitan Opera season and will do so again for the 2013-14 season.


The success of the Petroushka Ball is contingent upon the on-going participation of local and international businesses, as well as RCWS' patrons.  All net proceeds from the 48th Petroushka Ball will be directed towards RCWS’ charitable programs. Among them are educational scholarships for orphans, medical treatment for children with severe facial deformities, assistance to orphanages, rehabilitation programs for children with special needs, a “Yelka” (New Year and Christmas tree) party in Moscow for over 1,000 disadvantaged children visiting from many areas of Russia; and other vital programs. 


You can support these programs and be a part of the Petroushka Ball in one or more of the following ways: purchasing tickets to the Ball; placing advertisements in the Petroushka Ball program; donating prizes for the auction/raffle; making a cash donation; and supplying products for the gift bags.


Contact RCWS at 212-473-6263 or [email protected] for tickets, ads, auction donations and special sponsorships. 


We are looking forward to seeing you on Friday, February 8, 2013 at the 48th Petroushka Ball.
