Extravaganza Ball

The most fancy party of the Venice Carnival will take place in the Hall of the Ridotto, heart of the extravagant Carnivals of the 18th-century, where nobles, gamblers and adventurers such as Giacomo Casanova were regulars.

When the guests arrive they will enjoy a welcoming cocktail, followed by a five-course dinner (wines included) seated in a magical atmosphere, during which singular Venetian costumes by the best artists will make their appearance.

During and after dinner the Grand Ball will take place, led by the Dance Master with live music by a classical ensemble: a unique experience which combines amusementelegance, and partecipation.

Short historical excursus on the location you will spend a magical evening

The hall of the Ridotto has an extraordinary rich history. It was the first place in Venice and in the world to accomodate  gambling rooms openly. The young Casanova danced here and used this breath-taking place as a set for his conquests. After the second world war this space becomes the first dancing hall in Venice and after that an important theatre.  Nowadays, the Ridotto Hall where the Carnival Ball will take place belongs to the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal Hotel and gives you a stunning view on the Grand Canal.

What do you have to expect from the soiree

Imagine yourself as a main character of the spectacular Carnival experience in a luxurious location in the heart of Venice. After a sublime five-course dinner, the brightest Carnival night will proceed with dances and musical entertainment, between which you will shine like a diamond  wearing your extravagant and gorgeous period costume.
