About this Event

Our twilight opening hours are back! Join us at The David Roche Foundation in North Adelaide for the first open-late session of the season on Thursday 31 October from 5pm.

See magnificent Russian art in Triumph & Tragedy: Catherine, the Romanovs & Fabergé, and listen to captivating music played on a traditional Russian instrument, the balalaika, along with some soloists, performing traditional Russian and Cossack folk tunes. We’ll also have an impressive performance of Sambo, Russian martial arts by the Sambo Federation of South Australia, and some short talks about the exhibition, and of course time to kick back on the lawns to enjoy a drink and some Russian food from Siberia Catering.

The entertainment begins with a demonstration by the Sambo Federation of South Australia of this formidable Russian martial sport on the forecourt from 5:30 to 5:40pm.

This will be followed by the Adelaide Balalaikas playing a medley of old and new pieces on the traditional Russian instrument, the balalaika, on the forecourt from 5:45 to 6:00pm.

At 6:15pm, our expert guides will speak in the exhibition space on different aspects of Russian art displayed in the Triumph & Tragedy.

The evening will culminate with the Adelaide Balalaikas performing again, this time joined by two soloists, for a series of Cossack folk tunes, in the Roman room from 7:00 to 7:30pm.

 

Come by on the way home from work or before heading out to dinner.

 

Doors open 5pm – 8pm. Tickets are available for pre-purchase or on the door for $12 or $10 concession. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
