    Venice Carnival Ball The Glass Slippers - Cinderella

    A refined masquerade ball with lots of fun in a unique location: that’s what The Glass Slippers is all about.

    On Friday 17th February 2023 we are waiting for you on the beautiful island of Murano, and more precisely inside a historic deconsecrated cathedral.

    The building has recently been restored and renovated with every comfort; it is certainly the ideal setting for a masked ball inspired by Cinderella and the ‘crystal slipper’.

    The godmother of the party, our Cinderella, flees from her stepsisters and stepmother and enters the enchanted world of the party to find the slipper she had lost.

    Follow her and you too will cross the threshold of the splendid glass cathedral to immerse yourself in a fairytale setting: this former sanctuary has been beautifully decorated with marble and precious original decorations, Murano glass chandeliers and, above all, antique Venetian mirrors.

    Here, during the party, you will have the opportunity to attend an exhibition by master glassmakers from Murano who will create a crystal slipper with which to reward the most beautiful mask.

    The Glass Slippers masquerade party is a lifetime experience, an unforgettable evening and night: a unique and evocative location, a welcome drink, shows, a gala dinner, dancing, live music and a night-long celebration!
