Grandes Eaux Nocturnes



A summer of Grandes Eaux nocturnes

Saturday 20 and 27 June, Saturday 4, 11, 18, 25 July, Saturday 1, 8, 15, 22 August 2009, from 9 to 11:30 p.m.

At nightfall, the Royal Garden of Louis XIV becomes a surprising visual and audio journey. Visitors can discover the basins and groves in a flattering show of water, light and colour. Once again this year, lighting and stage design artists took possession of the gardens to make them sparkle with surprising installations: from the ghostly wreck of the Soleil Royal, the flagship of Louis XIV resurfacing from the depths of the water, to the lasers that will streak the area, or the spectacular crushing of the giant Encelade. Parade Design will unfold a graceful and unreal path through the Girandole and Dauphin Groves. Groupe F will surround the Tapis Vert with monumental flames and will set off fireworks across from the Grand Canal to end this mysterious evening, enriched by the masterpieces of French baroque music performed by Reinhard Goebel and his orchestra Musica Antiqua Köln.
