The Musical Fountains Show

From April 6th to October 27th 2019
Paying access from 9 am to 7 pm

Presentation

Every Saturday and Sunday from April 6th to October 27th 2019, and some exceptional dates. 
Every Tuesday from May 21st to June 25th 2019. 

During the Musical Fountains Show you can discover and enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the Château de Versailles gardens, of its groves exceptionally open to the public and of its fountains playing to the tune of period music.

The gardens were at the heart of King Louis XIV's attention and are world famous today. Already at the time of the King's reign, the Versailles groves were open air saloons secluded at the heart of the wooded parts of the garden. The court went there for a light meal, to listen to music or to dance. The King could satisfy his taste for gambling and theatre in these sites dedicated to entertainment and leisure. Decorated with fountains, vases and statues, these groves with their secret access bring fantasy and surprise within the Royal Garden.

These green bowers are now exceptionally accessible for you to discover. The talent of the 17th century fountain engineers and of their successors has always made the Musical Fountains Show an unforgettable and fairytale experience. The fountains play with multiple special effects and marble and metal gods, humans and animals seem to come to life for a few moments, for our greatest pleasure. When the fountains are playing, a ballet comes alive to enchant each and all. Your royal stroll will unfold to the tunes of the greatest baroque composers from Lully to Charpentier or Rameau.

For 350 years the success of the Musical Fountains Show has never waned. It is your turn to discover or rediscover them, with friends or family!

THE MUSIC OF THE MUSICAL FOUNTAINS SHOW

A selection of extracts from the Versailles-Alpha collection, conducted by the greatest baroque music specialists compose the soundtrack of the Musical Fountains Show, which will accompany your visit. Discover the Musical Fountains Show record on outhere-music.com.

SUGGESTION

On summer Saturdays, we offer the possibility of coupling your visit of the Musical Fountains Show with the Royal Serenade in the Hall of Mirrors, a visit of the Château de Versailles Grand Apartments with baroque musicians and dancers.
