The Royal Serenade in the Hall of Mirrors
Every summer Saturday, after the Musical Fountains Show or before the Night Fountains Shows, discover or rediscover Château de Versailles Grand Apartments in privileged conditions, with baroque musicians and dancers.
The Royal Serenade in the Hall of Mirrors is a forty minute visit of the Grand Apartments at sunset, from the Royal Chapel’s Vestibule, to the Hercules’s Salon, through the King’s Bedchamber and the Hall of Mirrors, in the company of the Musiciens des Folies Françoises and the Compagnie de Danse l’Eventail.
Dressed in magnificent baroque costumes, the artists bring to life scenes from the 17th century court in the golden setting of Versailles: the King’s dressing ceremony, the rituals of the Court ball, the meditative mood of religious music…
The Compagnie de Danse l’Éventail
Under the direction of Marie-Geneviève Massé since 1985, the Compagnie de Danse l’Éventail has been located in Sablé-sur-Sarthe since 2001. It travels all around the world and is recognized as an essential reference in the field of baroque dance; it develops two complementary approaches linking memory and innovation: one in the vein of the 17th and 18th century and the other with the design of original shows based on contemporary outlines and concepts.
