Soirée Offenbach – An evening with operetta tunes by Jacques Offenbach
Gems from the operettas of Jacques Offenbach come to life in a sparkling cultured salon where some of the great and the good in early 20th-century art have come to spend time.
In the course of the evening, the guests are inspired to perform scenes and numbers from operettas such as Orpheus in the Underworld, The Tales of Hoffmann and La belle Hélène.
In the spirit of the Belle Époque, this is a night of chandeliers and dazzling costumes – in the fashion of the day that even dared to show some leg.
