Up close with the artists
As if you were the guests of the master of the house holding the salon, let yourself be guided through the mansion, then be sweptaway by the power of the opera. You will be dazzled by the artists just a few meters from your eyes who, erasing the distances, will make you experience the opera “from the inside”.
An exceptional residence
Enter the secret cabinet of the historian-collector, admire the treasures of the Thiers library and the art collection during a private visit.
Enjoy the privilege of a confidential reception. The art and history of this heritage become the immersive setting of the opera.
Opera in a different way
Discover an adaptation of Verdi’s La Traviata centered on the three main roles accompanied by piano, violin and cello.
So, libretto in hands, follow Violetta from one salon to the next and share a glass of champagne with her, from her
social reception to her country house, until her tragic end.
Extend this precious moment by meeting the artists in the softness of the garden or in a lounge for an informal exchange over a cocktail.

The costumes come from the renowned Atelier Nicolao, a Venetian artisan company which, since 1980, has been creating historical costumes and dresses for major film productions as well as opera houses such as the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the New National Theatre of Tokyo, Teatro La Fenice of Venice.
The cast features outstanding artists from major opera productions.
