A new sound and light show in the castle park! From 4 July to 31 August 2019, Château d'Azay-le-Rideau will offer a new night stroll in the landscaped park, a veritable green setting for the monument.
The public is invited to take a free stroll at nightfall, marked by wonderful worlds and monumental projections.
Time and space… The world expanded in the Renaissance: debates on the place of the Earth in the Universe, navigation towards new lands, the theory of perspective and the measurement of man, rediscovery of mythologies and the arts of antiquity… these new ideas have been feeding the works and shows of the Court in the castles of the Loire banks since the 15th century.
In the spirit of the wonderful evenings of the Loire castles, the graphic designers of Explore Studio offer a virtual journey into the new worlds of the Renaissance: illuminations of the groves, the theatre of mists, the mysteries of the water mirror, memories of the stones….
The castle was thus placed at the very heart of the Renaissance, a period of exceptional artistic and intellectual effervescence.
