/R E P E A T -- Media Invitation - Mardi Gras, the new topsy-turvy benefit event in support of the Opéra de Montréal and Moisson Montréal/

MONTREAL, Feb. 2, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The Opéra de Montréal, in collaboration with the Casino de Montréal, is inviting you to experience the very first edition of an all-new event on Tuesday, February 9 at 7:30 pm: Mardi Gras, a spectacular evening benefiting Moisson Montréal and the Opéra de Montréal.

The event will bring experts from the worlds of gastronomy and entertainment into its topsy-turvy setting. Guests will notably get to sample culinary delights created by Jean-Pierre Curtat, Executive Chef of the Casino de Montréal. With their taste buds more than satisfied, attendees will also admire dazzling costumed characters and extravagant sets from the Opéra de Montréal, with Circo de Bakuza on hand to wow the crowd with a sound and light show. And of course, no MARDI GRAS would be complete without a VJ and DJ to spin an intoxicating mix of music all evening long.
