Presentation

A Court Ballet, how curious! Everyone knows of them, but whoever tried to revive one on stage? This is the challenge Sébastien Daucé set himself over the last four years.

After the reconstruction of the magnificent and incredibly varied music that met with great success in concert, here is Louis XIV’s beloved dance – the Sun King is central to this work. A panorama of French and Italian choreography in the middle of the 17th century, The Royal Ballet of Night is a masterpiece! Francesca Lattuada brings her baroque universe, her extravagant bestiary, and her grotesque follies to the staging and choreography of this ballet which ends at dawn with the apparition of Louis XIV as the Sun… The absolute Versailles myth!


Production Theatre of Caen.
Coproduction Royal Opera / Château de Versailles Spectacles, Ensemble Correspondances, Opera of Dijon.
With the support of Fondation Rothschild.

Surtitles in French and Italian with surtitles in French and English
