Dates

April - September 2022


Shows Include:

Organs of Fire (Orgues de Feu)

Every evening, on the old lake, nymphs and sprites dance to the music of romantic musicians dressed in illuminated costumes in a fantastic symphony of fire and water. The lake provides a wonderful background to this love story set on the water. A favourite of may, there will be approximately 100 shows in 2017.

Le Grand Carillon

Brand new for 2017! “Le Grand Carillon” is a truly unique musical performance that will take you back in time. In the heart of the Village XVIIIème, performed 16 meters from the floor, the bell ringers flit between 70 giant bells recreating some of the most celebrated pieces of music: a spectacular feat of melody and choreography!

The Secrets of the Lance (Le Secret de la Lance)

A spectacular medieval adventure inspired by the legend of a mysterious lance with magical powers, you will be amazed by the power and rhythm of the knights’ horseback stunts in this epic show. Part of the program since 2010, you will watch the young shepherdess defend her keep from the knights.

The Sign of Triumph (Le Signe du Triomphe)

In the super-charged atmosphere of the Gallo-Roman stadium, relive the fury of the circus games. Set in a replica of an amphitheatre, it features both people and animals, gladiatorial combat, chariot racing and executions.

The only show staged indoors, you will experience a magical show with capes, sword fights, flamenco ballets and incredible special effects!

The Vikings (Les Vikings)

At the foot of the keep, tremble at the sight of these Northern warriors launching their attack on their terrifying drakkars. Emerging from amid the flames in their longboats, fearsome Vikings attack the peaceful Fort de l’An Mil. At the foot of the watch tower, battle rages with an amazing display of special effects.

The Last Panache (Le Dernier Panache)

At the heart of the French revolution, follow the glorious destiny of a French naval officer, a hero from the American War of Independence, whose life will change dramatically in 1793, in a last fight for freedom!

 

The Dance of the Phantom Birds (Le Bal des Oiseaux Fantômes)
