The Queen's enchantments

Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 December at 6:30pm
The Queen's Hamlet

In the delightful hamlet Marie-Antoinette had built to bring her rustic dreams to life, the Queen gathered her favourites and staged refined, elegant fêtes where courtiers tried to seduce her with fireworks, trying to outdo each other's wittiness and inventiveness.
Fireworks, water effects and characters made of light glitter on the pond between the Dairy and the Mill, and illuminate the Queen's splendid houses for three exceptional nights!

Outdoor show without seats, night-time walk through Marie-Antoinette's hamlet (one hour).
