A 'masquerade' nodding to the fête galante paintings of Antoine Watteau, many of whose works are exhibited at the neighbouring Wallace Collection, whose founder, Richard Wallace, celebrates his bicentenary. Come into a world of mystery and flirtatious intrigue, reinterpreting this art through music, spoken word and dance.
