Presentation

The Marble Courtyard: this is the most intimate space in Château de Versailles, the heart of the first royal residence built by Louis XIII, lovingly preserved by his son Louis XIV. Just below the King’s Bedchamber, this magnificent space could be used for the "Spectacles de l’Extraordinaire". This is the experience we propose for an exceptional evening dedicated to a gem of Louis XIV’s reign, the one act opera Les Arts Florissans, composed in 1685 by Marc-Antoine Charpentier. 

The composer, an equal of Lully and Lalande for the exceptional quality of his music, was at the service of Marie de Lorraine, Duchesse de Guise, and created infinitely beautiful pages, much admired by Louis XIV. The music idyll Les Arts Florissans is evidently an allegory of the unprecedented flourishing of the arts inspired by Louis XIV, but it is also a tribute to the end of the war against Spain in 1684. A wonderful concert in the Marble Courtyard with a sophisticated reception, for a memorable evening.
