Prepare for elitism!


Have you ever wondered:

  • Why, even though the tickets were very expensive, the entire European beau-monde was present at the opening night of Verdi's opera Aida, which was held in at the Hatshepsut temple?
  • Why prominent banks collect masterpieces by famous artists?
  • How an unknown collector was able to recognize Modigliani's genius before he was famous, purchase his paintings, and become a millionaire?


Being part of society's elite is not just about glitzy parties and glamorous receptions. Belonging to it is not only a matter of bank accounts,  business connections, and earning ability. It is also a matter of  having an all-round education that allows you to feel confident in any company.


Professionalism, foreign language skills, eloquence, and diplomacy are unquestionably among the skills of well-mannered people. However, good manners alone won't be enough to help you converse about impressionist art at a Paris art exhibition, or distinguish baroque from rococo in Italy, or express your opinion about Bach in Germany.
