Our story is one among many in these challenging times we know, but we must try.
We must reach out to each other for help and fight on, together.
Once upon a time... comfort could always be found in the magical, wild world of theatrical entertainment. The struggles and dreams of life were viewed differently through the sparkle and shimmer of a cabaret show, the artist's voice and dance telling a beautiful, strange fairy tale....
because where there's a stage to perform upon there's always a place where hope never dies!
The History of Ellington Club
In 2012 Singer/Actress Vera Dragone and Artistic Director/DJ Alessandro Casella met for the first time at the Micca Club on Rome's bustling musical, burlesque and cabaret scene.
Fast forward a little... and after a son, Vittorio, and 7 amazing years together playing hard and working harder, finally in October 2019 they turned a shared fantasy into reality and opened the doors to an amazing venue, Ellington Club! The atmospheric theatre building was reborn with glamorous evenings of sophisticated burlesque, live music, dance, food and drink. It quickly became a magical home for thrilled audiences and a spiritual "home" for Vera, Alex and their “artistic family” with whom they had collaborated over the years.
