On July 30, Rundāle Palace will host the Festival “The Sounds of Liepāja at Rundāle Palace” organized by the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra – this year it will offer the audience four different events with a single themed motif “A ball at the Palace”.
In the struggle to survive in an environment full of political and social intrigue, the nobility had to constantly prove themselves through social skills, including dance. In the court dancing became a popular pastime, and dancing skills were mandatory for all members of the noble society.
Luxurious balls were once held in Rundāle Palace as well. For instance, around 1200 guests participated in the Harvest Festival organized by Count Zubov at Rundāle Palace on October 10, 1802.
