Presentation

Marie-Antoinette, a Queen's Destiny: a fire and light show

In July 2020, Groupe F’s magnificent pyrotechnical show returns to the royal setting of the gardens of Château de Versailles Orangery! The fate of France’s tragic queen is presented over a background of magical pyrotechnical and light effects, highlighting the landmark dates of her life, to the beat of the music of the greatest composers such as Mozart, Gluck or Tchaïkovsky: from the Lisbon earthquake on the eve of her birth to Napoleon’s victories, without forgetting American Independence and the Battle of Valmy…

In these four shows, firework specialists will take you on a journey through time in a scenography with fireworks, flames, videos, luminous characters and fire bearers celebrating the 250th anniversary of Marie-Antoinette's wedding.

Show in French with surtitles in English

Discover the 360° visit of the bleachers installed in the Orangery parterre.
