The Grand Ball with a touch of theatre in the heart of the Venetian carnivals

CARNIVAL EXTRAVAGANZA at the Ridotto

In the Hall of the RIDOTTO, heart of the somptuous carnivals of the 18th century where nobles, gamblers and libertines such as Giacomo Casanova were regulars, it will take place one of the most creative parties of the Venice Carnival in Costume® program.

After the welcome cocktail, the DINNER - prepared by the chefs of the Hotel Monaco - will take place in a magical atmosphere full of appearances that only artists, such as opera singers, dancers, and performers, in fantastic Venetian costumes can recreate.

After dinner, it will take place the GRAND BALL with a classical orchestra, led by the Masters of Dance: a unique experience that combines fun, elegance and involvement.

It is compulsory to wear a PERIOD COSTUME, which can be rented at the ATELIER TIEPOLO (look below for the different offers).
