Full description

After a considerable time, the Carnival of Venice is returning to Teatro La Fenice with a-not-to-be-missed Masked Grand Ball! The event, titled ‘The Carnival Elixir’, will take place on Saturday 22 February in the amazing setting of the famous Teatro La Fenice - one of the most prestigious theaters in the world as well as the historic ballroom of the Venetian aristocracy in the 19th century - and will offer you an evening of mystery, elegance and entertainment.

The program of this original masked grand ball at the Fenice Theater is really incredible: it will kick off with a welcome cocktail, served in the splendid Apollonian Halls, which will be followed by an excellent served fish dinner prepared by an expert chef and accompanied by a live musical ensemble, period dances guided by our Dance Masters, performances by dancers and other artists... strictly in period costume! This is the tantalizing menu:


Smoked salmon with pineapple and sorrel
Beef tartar with caper and anchovy
Bite-sized umbrine marinated with lime and green sauce
Pumpkin soufflé with black truffle
Prosecco wine, non-alcoholic fruit drink, mineral water

Lobster warm salad
Ravioli filled with pumpkin, red prawns and bisque
Red mullet fillet with fish stew
Soft chocolate cake with amaretto ice-cream and hazelnuts

Prosecco Brut Borgoluce and Carnival sweets


Mineral Water, Wine


Once dinner is over... it will be time to hit the dance floor for the Venice Carnival Grand Ball! In the marvelous Great Hall of the theater, our masters will engage you with period dances: waltzes, minuets and contradances will plunge you into the magical atmosphere of the Serenissima, made even more fascinating and mysterious by the costumes and masks worn by all the guests.

And if between the dances you want to take a break, in the bar room you will find tasty Carnival sweets accompanied by the inevitable Prosecco.

So, don’t wait any longer and book the Carnival Party at Gran Teatro La Fenice. Send us your request, specifying your choice (Sala Grande or Saloni Ammannati and Sinopoli): our Customer Care center will reply as soon as possible, after checking if there is still availability. Hurry though, because places are limited!

To make the evening even more fun and intriguing, a period costume is required. If you don't have one, don't worry, you can rent costumes and masks of the Venice Carnival at Atelier Tiepolo in Venice at discounted prices.

‘The Carnival Elixir’ at La Fenice in Venice awaits you on Saturday 22 February 2020... are you ready to dive into the fascinating world of Venice Carnival?
