"Prepare for an event like you have never seen! Our next adventure will take beauty and spectacle of Moulin Rouge on the water. Put on your finest red dress and all your costumed glory to join us on a 210', super-yacht for a sunset cruise around Statue of Liberty on the Hornblower Infinity, the largest cruise ship for hire in New York City!"
The Courtesan’s Voyage was Lightning Society’s highly anticipated launch event in New York City, hosted aboard the Hornblower Infinity, a 30,000sf, 210’ long, four deck, superyacht. A party like no one has ever seen before, one where every attendee was also a participant, an actor in everyone else’s fantastic experience. Red was the designated color and Moulin Rouge was the theme for our costumed guests. The celebration was orchestrated as a day to night transition, beginning with a stunning sunset tour around the statue of liberty and evolving into a spectacular laser light show with the New York City skyline as it’s backdrop.
Tickets sold out weeks in advance and eight DJ’s flew in from cities around the world to perform to the capacity audience. Six fire performers set the stage for an incredible evening, performing for the crowd while they were waiting in line. The display was so impressive it was already one of the most exciting event many had been to before they had even boarded the yacht. A mobile trapeze rig was set up on the main deck for aerial dancers to perform throughout the course of the evening and a secret tea room had been built on the top deck of the yacht to service guests in lavish style and mystique. When the dust settled the Courtesan’s Voyage was a mammoth success, Lightning Society had broken new ground in the New York City event scene and catalyzed a movement that continues to explode. We hope you’ll join us in taking it to even greater heights!
