About

Sebastien Dauce Director Le Concert Royal de la Nuit It is February 1653, just after the Fronde rebellion, and Cardinal Mazarin seeks to reassert the supreme authority of the French Court. He creates the most spectacular of occasions at the Louvre: Le Ballet Royal de la Nuit. Huge in scale and calling upon the skills of all the greatest artists of the day, with a libretto by Benserade, it was in this production that the 15 year-old Louis XIV danced in the Sun King costume, banishing the tremors of the night, and forever cementing his position as 'The Sun King'.
