My evening at the Lido

For a Dinner Show, we recommend that you arrive between 7:00 and 7:30 p.m. in order to take full advantage of the first part of your evening. Dinner is served starting at 7 p.m. Musical entertainment will provide the backdrop and give you the possibility of trying out some moves on the dance floor.

  • For the 11 p.m. show, please arrive starting at 10:45 p.m.

The Show lasts around an hour and a half.

Seating depends on the package chosen: Dinner Show / Champagne Show / Private Box and the type of menu. Seats are assigned by the head waiters and not on a first-come, first-served basis.

In order not to disturb the artists on stage, and for the comfort of other guests, you are not permitted to film or take photos for the duration of the show.

The “Paris Merveilles” Show

IS THERE NUDITY IN THE SHOW?

Our dancers are topless in certain scenes. The show, however, is very respectful of women and never succumbs to vulgarity. There is nothing that is designed to be shocking, particularly for young viewers, but we would like to point out that the presence of some nudity may offend certain audience members.

HOW OLD DO CHILDREN HAVE TO BE TO ATTEND?

You can bring your children age 4 and up with you to enjoy the show. Parents are responsible for the behaviour of their children, who must not disturb other guests. For younger children, we would like to point out that the Lido does not have any childcare services.

WHAT IS THE THEME OF THE NEW SHOW?

The theme is Paris. This new creation keeps the essence of Lido shows (the style, the glamour, the glitter, the feathers and sequins, and the dazzling Bluebell Girls) while adding daring new artistic concepts.

WHO IS FRANCO DRAGONE?

Franco Dragone is a world-renowned artistic director. His shows have already enchanted over 85 million spectators around the world, in particular “The House of Dancing Water” in Macau and Céline Dion’s “A New Day” in Las Vegas.
