Saturday 17 June 2023

11:00 to 17:00

Location : Centre de musique baroque de Versailles
  • CMBV - Journées découvertes


The "discovery days" offer, one Saturday a month, guided and interactive tours, listening workshops and treasure hunts for the whole family in the heart of the Hôtel des Menus-Plaisirs.
Thanks to this introductory workshop, baroque music will no longer hold any secrets for you! Discover the famous composers and works, hear and admire the instruments and costumes of the period... and be surprised by the link with some of today's art forms.

Guided by CMBV staff, enter this historic place, emblematic of French history, and discover its place in the political, social and artistic spheres from the 18th century to the present day!

Weird, weird... What's going on at 22 Avenue de Paris? A mysterious curse has befallen the Centre de musique baroque de Versailles. It all started during a choir rehearsal last night, at nightfall... A sudden flash of lightning illuminated the rehearsal room, and since then, the place seems to have gone back in time! You can hear horses' footsteps on the cobblestones of the courtyard... the white paint of the rooms is peeling, and you can see 18th century decorations instead... this morning the staff are wearing wigs... You will have to use your senses and your insight to put an end to the curse that has befallen the building...! The whole CMBV is counting on you!

2.30 p.m.: treasure hunt / From 10 years old (duration: 1h30)
