SALEM, MA — On Thursday, July 18, join the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) for a celebration of Midsummer Night.  The ancient and mystical Russian Midsummer Night (or Ivan's Day) is known as one of the most expressive Russian folk and pagan holidays. Midsummer rites are often connected to water, with girls floating flower garlands in rivers to tell their fortune.  

Celebrate with --

Russian music and dance performances by the Barynya Dance Ensemble of New York City.

Visit the new exhibition Fabergé Revealed for FREE and see the treasures created for the royal Russian family.

Peruse the PEM Shop, which has Fabergé -inspired jewelry and gifts.
Paint wooden eggs based on designs that have existed in folk culture for centuries.
Pastry samples -- like those served by the Russian Imperial family -- from Boston-based Cafe Athan’s Bakery

Established in 1991,  Barynya Dance Ensemble presents Russian, Cossack and Jewish traditional dancing and music on instruments including the balalaika, bayan, Gypsy guitars and violin. Barynya has been invited to perform at some of the most prestigious cultural venues in the U.S., including Carnegie Hall, the Smithsonian, the United Nations and the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C.

The name Fabergé is synonymous with refined craftsmanship, jeweled luxury and the Russian imperial family. PEM’s headlining summer exhibition, Fabergé Revealed, features more than 230 singular treasures created by the House of Fabergé in the late 19th and early 20th centuries including enameled clocks, gold cigarette cases, hardstone carvings, ruby encrusted brooches and four signature imperial eggs made for Nicholas II and the Romanov family.  Explore ideas of luxury, innovation and entrepreneurship, while gaining insight into Peter Carl Fabergé's life, business and legacy.
