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 a cocktail will be served.
DANDOLO PALACE, RIDOTTO MAIN HALL
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.
DATES: 3 and 10 February
ADDRESS: Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal, San Marco 1332, calle Vallaresso
