After incredible shows in 2007, 2010, 2011, Group F comes back this year with the Fountains Night Shows and an otherworldly show, Louis XIV, The Fire King performed this July 2017 on Thursday 7, Friday 8, Thursday 13 and Friday 14 in the Orangery gardens.
This show has been thought up to celebrate the tricentennial of the Sun King’s death and invites us to imagine one of the extraordinary parties the King thrown in the gardens, especially the Pleasures of the Enchanted Island, a party thrown in 1664. This artistic event brought fireworks for the very first time.
To carry out the show, Groupe F uses fire and flames, fireworks, video, luminous figures and fire bearers. Thanks to all this, we can experience the splendor of the parties at the French Court but with our current available equipment.
Groupe F even brings the Sun King back to life who will stage the show. For one hour, we discover different scenes including one featuring Mars and war (representing the young victorious sovereign), another one evokes the god Apollo symbolizing youthful beauty and protector of the Arts, and one of the scenes highlights, king of the gods.
Finally, the king meets the Sun, displaying his power over all and his universal glory, ending with an unforgettable pyrotechnics finale, as only Groupe F can offer. You will be amazed!
