This three-act opera has been presented at the Fenice in Venice based on a libretto by Francesco Mario Piave and based on Alexandre Dumas son’s novel “La Dame aux camélias”. We discover Violetta Valéry, a courtesan who takes pleasure in “perversion” (Traviata) by distracting herself in luxury and pleasures to forget about the terrible disease threatening her days. She falls in live with Alfredo Germont, a young man who accepts her life and manages to make her change by taking her out of Paris. Excluding that a few months later, Alfredo breaks up with Violetta who resumes her lifestyle, squandering her money and ending up ruined in an empty flat…
Intense and sad, the opera is staged with flavors by chefs Jocelyn Herland and Cédric Grolet. A menu in 3 acts to be enjoyed at Le Dali, Le Meurice gourmet restaurant that looks like a theater, designed by Philippe and Ara Starck, for €130 per person.
This menu is a score in 3 acts:
Bellini or mocktail served with three appetizers
Stuffed baby squids Venetian style
Veal medallion à la plancha, seasonal vegetable carnival
Violetta by Cédric Grolet
The dessert by the World’s Best Pastry Chef 2018 is a direct reference to Marie Duplessis’s favorite flower who inspired Alexandre Dumas for Violetta Valéry. A creation that will taste and look like a violet!
If you’ve got ticket for La Traviata, it might be a good gourmet idea in Paris.
