Each year the magical setting of the gardens of the Palace of Versailles (one of the most visited sites in France and, indeed, Europe) are the setting for a fairy-tale fountain display.
Devised during the reign of Louis XIV, this impressive spectacle set to music reflected the power and the majesty of the King himself. From March to October the event attracts more than half a million visitors who come to stroll through the sumptuous gardens where water and music mingle. This year, the musical programme has been entrusted to Jordi Savall, who has selected some of the finest treasures from the Alia Vox catalogue.
