Bacio Rosso is a fully immersive entertainment experience, set in a majestic, mirrored, 1920’s red velvet Spiegeltent, imported directly from Belgium.
Imagine Moulin Rouge meets Cabaret meets Burlesque. Guests are seated in the heat of the action with jugglers, contortionists, trapeze artists, magicians, singers and clowns for an unforgettable 3 hour event.
This experience is different that the usual Cirque experiences as it has a combination of Cirque, Comedy, and Cuisine.
Guests get to enjoy a four-course gourmet meal prepared by Vancouver’s award-winning chef, Adam Pegg of La Quercia, recognized as one of Vancouver’s premiere chefs specializing in authentic Italian cuisine.
The Premiere Performance is scheduled for November 1, 2018 in Queen Elizabeth Park and the show will run until the end of the year with a possibility of extension.
We were fortunate to get a sneak peek of the experience tasting the menu as well as seeing a few tricks up close like how to get a table to magically levitate.
The meal begins with a few Antipasti – Pork Loin Tonnato, Pork Cracking, Giardiniera (pickled vegetables) and Grissini (breadsticks). These are great items to pair with their Ferrari Brut.
The next course, you are served Melanzana alla Parmigiana, which is their gluten-free eggplant lasagna. It was really delicious and one of our favourite dishes. We didn’t realize it was gluten free.
You get 3 choices for your entree – slow roasted beef, braised chicken or Polenta with Mushroom. All 3 entree choices are great and you don’t go wrong at all.
Rosticciata di Manzo (Slow Roasted Beef)
Pollo in Umido (Braised Chicken)
Polenta con Funghi (Polenta with Mushrooms)
To end the night, Crema di Limone, which is a lemon cream. It was refreshing and tart as it cleanses your palate from the great meal.
Bacio Rosso is going to be one of the hottest tickets in town. You’ll never know who is in on the tricks and entertainment. Tickets are now on sale with prices starting at $109.
