The Tang Dynasty Ball, co-chaired by Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, coincided with The Asia Society's opening of the groundbreaking exhibition Secrets of the Sea: A Tang Shipwreck and Early Trade in Asia, on view through June 4, 2017.

Guests were feted by the Siong Leng Musical Association, their first performance in the United States. A traditional Tang Dynasty procession from cocktails to dinner followed. The five-course meal followed the itinerary of the sunken ship: a first course from northern China, followed by Vietnamese rolls, the entrée from India, and special Middle Eastern desserts. Betsy Z. Cohen and Asia Society VP Tom Nagorski gave introductory remarks. Persian desserts were served in the Garden Court, at a post dinner dance with the younger committee.

Betsy and Ed Cohen, Judith-Ann Corrente and Willem Kooyker were the evening's vice chairs. Carolyn Hsu-Balcer and René Balcer were the evening's benefactors. Friends of the evening included the Arnhold Foundation, J. Frank and Susan Brown, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz, Charlotte Feng Ford, Susan E. Lynch, Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon Polsky, Alexandra Munroe and Robert Rosenkranz, Barbara and Donald Tober, and Lulu and Anthony Wang; guests also included Ann Ziff, HRH Princess Jeet Nabha Khemka, Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, ABT's Hee Seo, actress Phylicia Rashad, Susan Gutfreund, Timothy Fok, and Nancy Moonves.

Founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller 3rd, Asia Society is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, educational institution headquartered in New York with state-of-the-art cultural centers and gallery spaces in Hong Kong and Houston, and offices in Los Angeles, Manila, Mumbai, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Washington, D.C., and Zurich.
