Espace Richaud

Wander freely in an unexpected and unheard-of way through the Espace Richaud in Versailles!

The Arte Lab choir and orchestra from the Lycée La Bruyère in Versailles, and their conductors Maïlys Pascault and David Sotiropoulos, invite you to (re)discover the space and your senses through the prism of verticality: music, dance, poetry, humanity between heaven and earth.
The works performed by the voices and instruments of the young musicians and their conductors, punctuated by choreographic improvisations, will (trans)carry you towards an imaginary world of your own: beauty, harmony, meditation, emotions and spirituality.
An evening marked by musical and dance proposals that resonate with the architecture, offering your peregrinations a setting with an immense palette of colors, styles, genres and formations: Rameau, Schubert, Fauré, Dvořák or Piazzolla, sacred or secular works, film music, electro, jazz, re/creations, improvisations...
Total Art in the service of the soul - that's our VERTIKKA(RT) n°1 project!

Admission is free, so don't wait any longer!

Musée Lambinet

In its beautiful Versailles setting, the Musée Lambinet awaits you for mini-tours guided by students from the Lycée Marie Curie's Art History specialization, among works of art featuring women in the spotlight. 
Times: 8.15pm, 9.00pm, 9.45pm and 10.30pm.

Admission is free. 

You can also become an artist yourself! Guided by a visual artist, you're invited to take part in a collective work inspired by the museum's collections. Perfect for young and old alike! 
Join in from 8pm to midnight!

The Petit Trianon

A masterpiece of the Versailles estate, the Petit Trianon opens its doors to you for a nocturnal discovery! 

You'll discover the little château designed by architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel for King Louis XV, and which Queen Marie-Antoinette would later mark with her own style.
You'll then follow a path of light through the gardens to the Théâtre de la Reine, the Pavillon Français and the Jardin du Roi at the Grand Trianon, from where you'll make your way to the exit.
You'll be accompanied as you wander through the gardens, by a series of guided tours designed to help you understand the historical and artistic context in which these spaces were built and decorated.
Pianists and harpists from the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional will perform pieces from different periods on the theme of nocturnes.
