This is a party surrounded by mystery and intrigue that will complement all the class and elegance of the venue.
Masquerade Photo Booth
As soon as guests arrive, they will be offered a Venetian mask. This will instantly put them into the mood of the event and enforce the theme.
They will then have an official photo taken immediately by our photographer. These photos will be available in a souvenir folder before the end of the evening.
The Masquerade Photo Booth will be open during the cocktail and after dinner for more fun souvenirs. Photos can be printed instantly, sent by e-mail, or uploaded to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
During the cocktail, guests will be welcomed by 2 elegant female violinists in Venetian masks … who themselves have a secret that will be revealed later.
The music would set the scene perfectly: classy yet contemporary with a Venetian theme.
Later the same musicians will perform a dynamic stage show, as classical instruments are swapped by electric violins and the masks replaced by striking stage-wear.
A final party set will step up the tempo to get everyone in the mood for the DJ after dinner.
Throughout the early part of the evening, guests will encounter 2 mysterious waiters in masks who will enhance the theme of the event talking about the intriguing history of the venue along with interesting information about the food and drink and other delights.
However, after the main course, they will make a brief speech … they will reveal themselves as outstanding tenor singers.
Their first set will focus on audience interaction with well-known Italian influenced songs that fit the theme, like That’s Amore, Volare and the Brindisi drinking song from Figaro. After dinner, they will encourage dancing with a second short set feating the world’s best-known rat pack songs.
This is an unusual style of close-up entertainment, very popular in Venice, that fits in well with the theme of secrecy and mystery.
Silhouettes are cut out within minutes, then offered to guests on coloured card, to serve as yet another permanent souvenir of the event.
We invite one of the top silhouettist artists in the region. Later he can also draw some fun caricatures of guests to offer an added dimension to the entertainment.
Gold Circle Magician
Magic shows have always been popular at gala events, and the barrier is continually being raised.
We are proposing no ordinary magician, but one who is considered among the best in Europe for special events.
Etienne has performed for VIPs, royalty and celebrities, and is one of very few magicians to be invited to join the select “magic gold circle”.
Once again, his acts will focus on mystery and intrigue. He will perform close-up magic during dinner and a brief stage show later that will leave the guests breathless.
Then, we invite one of the most mysterious artists with the most unusual hidden talents.
Kristalleon, the harlequin with a floating glass harp and mirror costume enchants with a fusion of light and sound including a symphony played entirely on wine glasses.
DJ & Dancing
There’s no better way to complete the evening, than with a packed dance floor and the energy created by all guests having a great time.
Our DJ brings with him an enormous repertoire of over 10000 songs, and as always, he’s happy to take requests (within reason).
He will also be working closely with all performers so that the whole music programme flows perfectly according to the mood and reactions on the night.
