During a supper in a high society Second Empire salon, where appearance is everything, the guests, excited by the sensuality of good food, gradually let their masks drop to give free rein to their fantasies, accompanied by the exhilarating rhythm of Offenbach’s music. On the menu: Geneviève de Brabant, Madame l'Archiduc, La rose de Saint-Flour, La Princesse de Trébizonde and other choice morsels from the great Jacques.

Show produced by the Opéra Comique and the Musée d’Orsay as part of the Folies Favart
