The sights and sounds of Versailles – elegant 17th century dance meets the best of French Baroque music.

Recreating the sounds of Versailles, we’re blending elegant French dance from the court of Louis XIV with a greatest hits of French music from the era.

Mixing the best of Lully, Rameau, Campra, Charpentier and more, this is a golden jukebox of French baroque, accompanied by authentic choreography as it was seen in the Royal palaces of the 17th century.

Together the music and dance tell a story bringing together characters from OrfeoAcis and Galatea and other well-known classical stories. Think Into the Woods, but for Greek myth.

The dance is choreographed by Hubert Hazebroucq, star of the BBC film about Louis XIV, The King Who Invented Ballet.

The first night of our spectacular double-header as part of the Rhinegau Musik Festival.
