Nights - Ballet de la Nuit

Inspired by Ballet de la Nuit of Louis XIV director Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe lets the most exotic figures parading on stage.

 

The eponymous twelve-hour Ballet de la Nuit by Louis XIV from 1653 provides the opportunity to make an extravagant attempt to fight evil. In this ballet, the landscape of the night is danced and sung. Full of entrées and intermezzos, the night is divided into four parts in which different types meet in a polymorphic event. In a mixture of seriousness and fancy, praise and satire and mythology and contemporary politics, this show, reduced to one hour, turns the king into a jester.
