The skies of all Europe, including Lake Annecy or Chantilly, still remember. For several decades, Jean-Eric Ougier is one of the most prestigious international artificers. This Saturday evening, it is on the magnificent domain of Saint-Cloud (Hauts-de-Seine) that the specialist will light his "Full Lights".
For the first time in Ile-de-France, this gifted man imports from his Savoie his famous concept of "pyroconcert". The principle of this show lasting more than 3 hours 30 is simple, even if its realization is much less. On music performed live, we take full mirettes admiring illuminated flames and laser show while feasting his ears.
The usual "Big Fire" changes formula this year. The site of the festivities has been modified. It is above the pit of the 24 jets that Jean-Eric Ougier and his team will express themselves. Installed on this site, "the public will dominate the large waterfall and especially a breathtaking view of the capital," says the artificer, seduced by the magic of place. Since the seventeenth century, in the time of the Sun King, then that of Napoleon III or Queen Victoria, the area was exclusively devoted to festivals. Ougier intends to reconnect with this spirit. "I want to bring visitors joy and pleasure, through immediate sensations," says the designer.
In three stages
The evening is divided into three parts. First, at 6:30 pm, well before nightfall, the expected 10,000 spectators will marvel at the water games sublimated by an intimate concert of classical music. It will be provided by very famous musicians: the violinist Gilles Apap and the pianist Dana Ciocarli, who, in another register, has already accompanied Philippe Katerine on tour.
In a second time, between dog and wolf, it is a real rock tribute to Queen is planned, mixed with lights, water and lasers and a few "beautiful reds and beautiful blue".
After this introduction, in the middle of the night, we will reach the grandiose, with the majestic and majestic music of Pink Floyd. On the menu: 1 h 15 of sumptuous choreographies of reflections and fireworks, not to mention a final bouquet worthy of the name.
