About the Event
Experience classical music like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Wagner at Versailles's remarkable Versailles Palace.
Marvel at the lavish grandeur of the Palace of Versailles, a huge Baroque complex comprising a former royal residence, incredible gardens, spectacular fountains, and the Museum of the History of France. The complex stretches over 787 hectares and is a major UNESCO World Heritage Site. Restoration began in 1892, and although interrupted by both World Wars, among other cataclysmic events, continues today.
Visitors should devote a whole day to Versailles, with its abundance of attractions. Deservedly, the most famous room is the Hall of Mirrors - a 70 metre gallery decorated with 17 huge mirrors that reflect the opposite windows and their garden views. However, the Royal Opera of Versailles is another of the Palace's gems. Its' wooden interior painted to look like marble means that the opera house boasts superb acoustics, as well as the finest décor.
Treat yourself to the best of classical music amidst the opulence of this world-famous palace!

- Orchestre National d'île de France (Orchestra) From the time of its inception in 1974, the Paris Regional Council and the Ministry of Culture assigned to the Orchestre National d’Ile de France the mission of bringing orchestral music to the entire Paris Region, with a further specific aim of reaching and developing new audiences.
The variety of musical programmes presented by the musicians of the Orchestre National d’Ile de France - in as many as 100 concerts every year - reflects the wide interests of our audiences. The youthfulness and openness that characterise the Orchestre National d’Ile de France (and which fulfil part of its mission) have established it amongst the most dynamic and innovative of today’s symphony orchestras, with new musicians joining its ranks year after year.
French music is obviously at the core of the orchestra’s repertoire. The players' enthusiasm for this repertoire is reflected in the subtlety and refinement of the orchestra’s sound, a quality still cherished by French orchestras today.
