CHÂTEAU DE VERSAILLES SPECTACLES
As a subsidiary of the Public Establishment of the Museum and National Estate of Versailles, the purpose of Château de Versailles Spectacles is to maintain the tradition of the Musical Fountains Show, which attracts more than a million spectators every year, and to create a season of live shows and outstanding events.
As the symbol of a triumphant monarchy, Versailles was both an artistic and political hub. Louis XIV assembled the most brilliant performers of the time on his estate and allowed new styles to blossom. This environment, shaped by the arts, lay at the heart of the most sumptuous festivals and celebrations: the most magnificent equestrian and nautical shows, banquets, plays, opera, ballet and fireworks followed each other in rapid succession.
Faithful to its history, the Palace of Versailles continues to be the setting for a widely varied cultural life and series of events. Leading international performers bring its most beautiful locations to life with both classic and modern works.
