Minuetto at the Ridotto
February 23 @ 20:00 - February 24 @ 0:00 CETCost: €320
The Gala dinner is a chance to experience an authentic evening ball with the presence of a Dance Master. During and after dinner you can learn the basic steps – easy and fast learning – of the dances from 1700s and 1800s, such as minuet, counterdance, waltz, and other period dances. The four-course dinner is seated (wines included) and a baroque ensemble with an opera singer will entertain the guests throughout the evening. At the arrival of the guests an aperitif with Prosecco and finger food will be served.
The palace of the noble Dandolo was the first place to accomodate the “Ridotto”, public gaming rooms from 1638 till 1774. It used to be open during Carnival, which lasted several months, and during that time Giacomo Casanova considered the Ridotto as the stage setting and backdrop for his conquests. Today the hall belongs to the hotel Monaco & Grand Canal and lends itself well to recreate the magic of those carnivals that Europe envied to Venice.
The welcome cocktail will take place in the Crozzola hall and the dinner in the Ridotto main hall.
