Ah yes, couture craziness. I can't imagine those costumes will hold up for very many seasons.  ;)

Only a national ballet company can normally afford such a thing.

According to this article in Vogue, it was an opening fundraiser gala and was attended by

 

a prestigious and elegant roster of international luminaries from the worlds of ballet, fashion, arts, cinema, philanthropy, and culture, who gathered to watch performances from five different choreographers.
