It’s an exceptional event we love to return to every year: the Domaine de Chantilly Great Stables equestrian company’s Christmas Show. Always spectacular, always using cutting-edge technic and technology, always perfectly staged.
The idea? Making acrobatics and dance dialog with equestrian exploits in a wonderful set and sophisticated costumes. The whole with the poetry of a beautiful story and bright colors.
The new show is called A Midwinter Night’s Dream. The title rings a bell? It’s an exceptional adaptation of William Shakespeare’s famous play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But with an equestrian twist! Horses, donkeys and ponies will parade under the dome of the Great Stables along with their riders, dancers and acrobats.
The story follows: “Once upon a time…The fairies reigned in the forest and had fun changing people’s destiny; elves and goblins, playing lots of tricks, wandered gaily in the undergrowth. At this time, Hermia was in love with Lysander, against her father’s will, who wanted her to marry Demetrius. To escape from this forced marriage, the two young lovers run away to the forest. Demetrius learns of their escapade and decides to pursue them. Helena, who is unrequitedly in love with Demetrius, in turn follows him.”
