Legend has it that Le Meurice was frequented in the 1840s by the lovers of Marie Duplessis, the woman who inspired Alexandre Dumas the Younger to pen his famous novel La Dame aux Camélias, which in turn was the inspiration behind Violetta, the leading lady in Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata. The revival of La Traviata at the Palais Garnier has inspired Le Meurice to immerse its guests in Violetta’s world with a specially composed offer full of brio which is bound to strike a chord with opera lovers.
The offer is available from the “Superior Suite” category upwards, so you can choose from a repertoire of six categories of suites for your stay. As you walk through the door, you will instantly feel in tune with the carefully stage-crafted decor, which achieves a melodious harmony between eighteenth-century classicism and contemporary chic. A bottle of champagne, two Optima category tickets and a programme will await your entrance.
The next scene of this lyrical soirée takes place at the Palais Garnier, just a short stroll away from the so-called “arts hotel”, where you will take your seats to enjoy the new production of La Traviata. Directed by Simon Stone, the two rising stars of the opera world will perform this revival: the soprano Pretty Yende and the tenor Benjamin Bernheim.
The next morning, relive the memory of your operatic escape over a delicious breakfast in the sumptuous setting of the le Meurice Alain Ducasse restaurant, which was directly modelled on the Salon de la Paix in the Château de Versailles…
Le Meurice has chosen three dates when you can take advantage of this exclusive offer:

The La Traviata Experience includes:
An accommodation in a Superior Suite or a suite of a higher category (from EUR 2,210)
