The ROM proudly welcomed 200 guests for an unforgettable evening of Pompeian flair and style in celebration of the Canadian premiere of Pompeii: In the Shadow of the Volcano on Tuesday, June 9. 2015. Guests enjoyed an exclusive preview of this highly anticipated show, an exquisite dining experience curated by celebrity chef David Rocco, and a stunning performance by the Vesuvius Ensemble.
This stunning exhibition showcases 200 evocative objects that tell the dramatic story of Pompeii, an ancient Roman city frozen in time after the volcano Vesuvius erupted with tremendous force and little warning. Event proceeds supported the exhibition and engaging initiatives to share it with the community.
