Welcome 2013 in another time, another place.....
Be transported to the opulence of tsartist Russia, channelling the majesty of the Winter Palace with a degustation menu celebrating the cuisine of Carême: ‘The King of Chefs.’ We start the evening with 1995 Krug and continue the night with premium wines matched to each course including 1993 Château d'Yquem.
With a musical history spanning nearly 50 years, performances in over 37 countries and the movie ‘Shine’ based on his remarkable journey, David Helfgott will grace Melbourne from the top – Rialto’s Level 55, to usher in the New Year with breathtaking interpretations of Rachmaninoff on a baby grand piano.
The honeyed falsetto of jazz singer Josh Kyle and his band will also feature throughout the evening.
Gather your friends to watch our stunning city burst into the New Year (the best place in town to see the fireworks!) and be part of history with a special musical celebration that has never been seen in Melbourne, and never will be again.
A donation will be made on behalf of Vue de monde to The Buttery - a non-profit organisation very close to the hearts of the Helfgott family.
