A Renaissance opera dinner experience

THE HIDDEN LETTER OF LUCREZIA BORGIA

“Lucrezia Borgia is considered to be the most ill-reputed of women in modern History. Is it because she was the guiltiest amongst them? Does she only have to carry the burden of the abhorrence of the world – that was wrongly imposed on her ?”

Ferdinando Gregorovius

As you enjoy your welcome drink we will present you the experience. Learn more about one of the most powerful among the noble families in 14th century Rome while enjoying entertaining stories and anecdotes, and mostly tasting delicious recipes in a fascinating historical site.

The evening was named  “The Scary Dinner” with humour because the Princess Lucrezia Borgia – daughter of Pope Alexander VI famous for her beauty and charm – was also known as a clever politician and a refined poisoner!

A soprano will sing a modern and colorful interpretation of arias from Donizetti’s opera “Lucrezia Borgia”.

Videos related to Lucrezia Borgia and her time will be featured during the event.
