A night at Versailles
Parties held over the centuries to Versailles are exceptional moments in the history of the palace and the history of art.
The Sun King Louis XIV born at St Germain en laye in the French countryside and raised in Paris at le Louvre (his castle which is now the famous Museum) finally decided to move the court and the nobles from Paris to Versailles making the City of Versailles the heart of the French power for one century.
It was not an easy deal to move the court. The King understood that he needed to attract the nobles by offering them activities to distract them… Hunts, rides, theatrical performances, concerts, ballets, dances, games of skill were among the main attractions of living in Versailles.
King Louis XIV was the first King to codify this exercise and make an organized scheme to make it an instrument of his glory. Its objective is twofold: to ensure a docile court and to build an image that survives him.
Nowadays, the Versailles Palace propose you to live a night at Versailles.
There will be dancers, performers and artists taking part in the newly staged ball. The Grand Masked Ball is the occasion of an exceptional evening in period costume at Château de Versailles.
Be ready! Get dressed with your most beautiful costume, mask, makeup & wigs and enjoy a night to feel how it was during the time of the king.
