As night falls, immersive special effects and monumental projections take over the magnificent architecture of the Royal Castle of Blois.
BLOIS, THE THEATRE OF A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
A true festival of special effects, this Sound & Light literally brings French history to life. Thanks to a sound and visual production as captivating as it is strikingly realistic, “Ainsi Blois vous est conté” reveals the four wings and the genius of the great builders from the 13th to 17th centuries. Precise 3D modelling of the morphology of the façades to dress and animate the architectural diversity of the premises, remixed music, spatialized voices, video mapping, incrustation of real shooting scenes: the technologies used for this new scenography have allowed all the eccentricities never seen in Blois.
“SO BLOIS IS TOLD TO YOU”, THE STORY OF 1,000 YEARS OF HISTORY! ! 45 MINUTES OF SOUND AND VISUAL EFFECTS
Lights that match the building’s volumes, flickering candle flames, glowing ash effects, gold embossed and illuminated facades, climbing roses that invade the castle’s wings or spectacular stained glass windows for Joan of Arc’s passage, dripping rain on the building, stabbing and bloody facades after the murder of the Duke of Guise: additions of sound effects and immersive sounds project the audience into a unique 360° show. Remixed and spatialized to adapt to the new narrative, Robert Hossein’s musical tracks and familiar timbres, Pierre Arditi and Fabrice Lucchini, associated with Alain Decaux’s writing, captivate the audience in a maze of sounds and lights.
