Carnival with Marcel’s

Part #3 – Masquerade in Venice

With DJ G-Winz

 

Our final evening of Carnival was set in the floating streets of Venice. Dim lights glowing from the high windows of the houses overlooking the canal, and the distant sound of music echoing along the dark waters.

Guests arrived close to a wooden jetty, with the lamplight flickering on the surface of the gently rippling water. They were beckoned towards the water’s edge, where a silent gondolier glided up to the edge of the jetty and invited them to sit. The gondola carried our guests across the softly lapping waters to the palazzo at the far end of the canal. They could see the lights flickering in the windows as they drew closer, and hear the strains of the masquerade waltz. The gondola smoothly deposited them at the steps of the piazza, where the guests were greeted by our DJ for the night, Mr G “Winz” Winstanley. The music for the evening was a selection of G’s usual eclectic mixes, ranging from Italian classic, heavy opera and light hearted dances.

The set was the perfect backdrop for everyone to really show off their amazing masquerade outfits and as usual, we weren’t disappointed by the couture.

And here are some stunning ‘real’ Venetian masks and costumes, set to music as your backdrop for this page.

 

The Venice set is still there and will remain there for a while, you if you missed the show, or just want to go back and dance on the piazza and float about in the gondola, you can get there by using the teleporter at the end of the corridor at Marcel’s.

I would like to give a big thank you to our 3 amazing DJ’s who worked so hard to provide the perfect music for our Carnival nights, and to all our guests who always make such an effort to dress up and have fun. Thank you guys – and hope to see you again soon!
