The Royal Serenade & Fountains Night Show in Versailles
About the Event
Relive the flamboyant days of the reign of Louis XIV at Versailles: Just before the famous Fountains Night Show, Baroque dance company L’Éventail and the musicians of the ensemble, Les Musiciens de Saint‐Julien, evoke the tradition of a royal ball in the grand apartments of the king.
Following the musical delights in the Hall of Mirrors, the Royal Garden becomes a land of astonishing sights and sounds. Visitors discover a world of colorfully illuminated groves and bubbling fountains. Fireworks against the backdrop of the Grand Canal close this spectacular display, which is enhanced by (pre‐recorded) French Baroque music.
