The artistry of opera and the culinary artistry of Brookfield Place retailers collide in these opera inspired offerings.

Opera cake at Sha Patisserie
The classic Opera cake is a decadent dessert named after the Parisian opera house, Opera Garnier. Created by pastry chef Cyriaque Gavillon’s wife, Andree, who named his creation the Opera Cake because the layers resembled the steps of the grand opera house. Opera cake is traditionally recognised for its rectangular shape. It is made of Almond cake soaked in coffee syrup, chocolate ganache, and coffee buttercream in layers.

The Music of the Night Cocktail at W Churchill 
Prohibition Moonlight Gin, Lemon, Hopped Grapefruit, Vanilla, Prosecco.

This cocktail is inspired by the famous musical aria ‘The Music of the Night’ from The Phantom of the Opera. This moment takes place after the Phantom lures Christine (a beautiful soprano he is enamoured by) to his lair beneath the Opera House. He seduces Christine with “his music” of the night, his voice putting her into a trance. This story is set at the Parisian opera house, Opera Garnier, the very opera house that also inspired the decadent dessert – the Opera cake.
