On the occasion of the Cultural Olympiad and the European Heritage Days, the Palais Royal unveils an exceptional free show to be discovered in the courtyard of the Palais Royal, at the Colonnes de Buren. Discover "Horizon", an extraordinary acrobatic ballet that awaits you from September 15 to 17, 2023.

Horizon: that's the name of the free acrobatic happening between ballet and circus that awaits you at the Palais Royal from September 15 to 17, 2023, as part of the Journées du Patrimoine.

Take to the courtyard of the Domaine national du Palais-Royal, in place of Buren's columns, and let yourself be carried away by this spectacular sound show. Compagnie l'Oubliée, directed by Raphaëlle Boitel, transforms the roofs and passageways of the Palais-Royal into a grandiose stage.
