Here is the evening program (from: http://www.carnevale.venezia.it/) of the opening event of the Carnival of Venice 2015, that will take place this weekend at Canale di Cannaregio:

Saturday January 31st

6.00pm to 6.30pm: first showing of “ The Magic Banquet – A Gourmet’s fairytale in Venice”
6.30pm to 8.00pm: music and entertainment in local restaurants and bars.
8.00pm to 8.30pm: the second showing of “The Magic Banquet – A Gourmet’s fairytale in Venice”
8.30pm to 10.00pm: music and entertainment in local restaurants and bars.

Every chapter of the show  will represent a step towards the celebration and the enhancement of taste: seasoning and food, traditional dishes, fishermen’s villages and bread houses, strawberry and tea cups, are just some of the protagonists of a floating world which describes with irony, passion and amazement, the perfume and the flavors of a typical “made in Italy” menù.

Food will literally fly on suggestive luminous hot-air balloons, and performers will interpret Italian pleasure, sensuality, taste and light heartedness. Nu’Art will present our passion for good food on stage.

The canal will turn into a true water stage: discreet boats will carry the artists from a bank to another, like friends at the table joining hands when they pass food around.

Sunday 1st February

11.00 am: entertainment starts on the banks of Cannaregio Canal

12.00 pm: Venetian tipical food and wine offered by A.E.P.E.
