Moët & Chandon 1880 Ultimate VIP Experience
The Ultimate Luxury Holiday Gift
N THE QUEEN OF PARIS is a musical reimagining of Emile Zola’s romantic and touching novel Nana, making its world premiere in Toronto’s beautiful, historic Elgin Theatre on September 24, 2015.
In coordination with the legendary luxury champagne house, Moët & Chandon, the official champagne of N THE QUEEN OF PARIS, Monlove presents the extremely limited Moët & Chandon 1880 Ultimate VIP experience, available for $1,880.
The N THE QUEEN OF PARIS cast of 24, along with a ten piece orchestra, will present 30 new songs that fuse contemporary sound with the flavour of French music from the Second Empire. Set and costume designs will evoke the grandeur and fashion of life in Paris, the most stylish city in the world! With its gaslight glimpses into the worlds of Parisian theatre and courtesan salons, N THE QUEEN OF PARIS is a champagne-soaked, rags-to-riches musical that brings the joie de vivre of 19th century Paris to the 21st century stage.
The Moët & Chandon 1880 Ultimate VIP experience includes two premium seats in a private section with butler service and access to the Moët VIP Lounge where light refreshments will be served. As part of this package, guests will receive an exclusive bottle of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 1988*, which is currently unavailable in North America and is being imported specifically for N THE QUEEN OF PARIS.
Every Grand Vintage Moët & Chandon champagne is unique and original; a creation of the cellar master’s personal interpretation of the singular qualities of that year’s grapes; and respects the individuality of each finely-aged, complex and charismatic vintage. Moët & Chandon 1880 Ultimate VIP guests will have the option to enjoy the champagne during the show or to take it home for another celebration.
Also available is the Moët & Chandon VIP package, for $249 per ticket, which offers a limited number of guests premium seating with access to the Moët VIP Lounge, two glasses of Moët & Chandon champagne and light refreshments to enjoy during the show, as well as an exclusive show souvenir.

About N THE QUEEN OF PARIS
N THE QUEEN OF PARIS is based on Emile Zola’s Nana, the ninth installment of the famous and controversial series Les Rougon-Macquart, which portrayed life in France during 1852 to 1870 when the boulevards, cafés and nightlife of modern Paris were just being born. Nana, the main character, is a young, single mother and an aspiring actress, working hard to provide for her child and striving to achieve a successful career. As Nana rises to stardom and becomes an icon known as “the Queen of Paris,” two men—one young bourgeois and the other a middle-aged, wealthy nobleman, fall in love with her. Although she attains more success and wealth than she could have ever dreamed, she does not feel fulfilled and struggles with her desire to love and be loved. Lighthearted but also poignant, N THE QUEEN OF PARIS is a timeless love story that joins the past and the present to bring Zola’s classic story into the 21st century, sharing Nana, who was already a very modern woman for her time, with today’s audiences. http://nthemusical.com
