DURING A LYRIC DINNER
At 6:15 pm, in front of your hotel/accommodation, a surprising Citroën 2CV will be waiting for you. At the wheel of the car, you will meet a Parisian chauffeur who will welcome you with a big smile.
You will seat aboard the convertible vehicle and will begin an amazing ninety minutes tour through the most beautiful Paris neighborhood: Concorde, Louvre, Vendôme, Opéra, Champs-Élysées, Notre-Dame, Eiffel Tower...
Then, once the wonderful joyride ended, the car will park in front of an Italian restaurant, your final destination. On site, a hostess will accompany you to the special table specially reserved for you. You will be served a kir, and you will discover the elegant and theatrical setting of the evening: walls painted in clay colors, candelabrum creating an intimate lighting, opera posters, and, here and there, a few theatrical costumes coming from the Opéra de Paris.
Once the menu selected, a (fake) waiter and a (fake) waitress will come out to your table to immediately sing, to the attention of your beloved, an opera song. A very unique emotional experience! Both artists, while pursuing their flight of lyricism, will offer a red rose to your partner and will pour a glass of champagne. A few minutes later, the voice and piano recital will end by a round of applause...
Caught up in a wave of emotion, you will begin the tasting of a procession of delicious dishes: royal sea bream and salmon tartare with mango and fresh ginger marinade, pan-fried king prawns with coriander vegetables and shellfish with lemongrass emulsion, and fresh seasonal fruit broth infused with fresh mint and mandarin sorbet. As a perfect pairing, you will enjoy vintage wines of Tuscany, Frioul, Venetia or Sicily.
Throughout the evening, the waiters (all of them being opera singers) will serve the dishes while interpreting songs drawn from the Italian lyric repertoire. A lady serving a Chianti will sing The Marriage of Figaro (Mozart) while two other waiters will bring antipasti on Carmen (Bizet) or The Enchanted Flute (Mozart). Two waitresses will answer by a duet of The Tales of Hoffmann (Offenbach) whereas two other singers will sing, to accompany a tiramisù, Rigoletto (Verdi) or Romeo and Juliette (Gounod)...
