This year’s theme is promises to be a colourful pyrotechnic show. If Botticelli, Van Gogh or even Picasso were staging the Fête du Lac for one night only, which “fire paintings” would they treat audiences to? Pyrotechnics master Antonio Parente will answer this question with a firework display of 21 artistic masterpieces.

The Fête du Lac’s stunning lake and mountain setting provides the backdrop for an enormous open-air gallery displaying the greatest artworks in the history of the world. The gallery presents 21 paintings in 8 themed rooms transformed into light, colour and music. Everyone knows these stunningly beautiful artworks and they are bound to inspire different sensations and reactions in each and every one of us.

Please call to book: (00 33) (0)4 50 33 65 65.
