Labyrinth of Jareth brings the fantasy realm of the movie of the same name to guests every year, by providing a lavish setting to dress up in your whimsical best in a beautiful venue, with performances, merchants, dancing, music, and more available to create a night to remember. We are so grateful to Sypher Arts Studio, who puts on this annual event, and giving all of us nerds a chance to dress up and have the chance to experience such an amazing event!
This year, Labyrinth made a last minute venue change to the historic Millennium Biltmore hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The hotel is an architectural treat in itself, having been erected in the 1920s in a mix of Spanish-Italian Renaissance Revival, Mediterranean Revival, and Beaux Arts styles. The hotel also played host to the origins of the Academy awards, hosting the Oscars in its early years.
With this historic change in venue, Labyrinth was an even greater treat than usual for patrons this year, as guests could explore 3 floors of rooms providing different musical, dance, and other various stage entertainment. On the main stage in particular, dancers and musicians spun a fantasy tale told through a sequence of performances all night, culminating in an epic all-cast finale that even included Sparkles, the dragon!
We are so grateful to be fantasy nerds in a town like Los Angeles, where other like-minded artists can come together and experience such a magical night every year.
Below are some of our photos from the night, but they barely scratch the surface of this amazing masquerade ball. We can’t wait for next year!
