Illuminations on the Napoleonic epic

As part of the 2021 European Heritage Days, the Department of Seine-et-Marne is inaugurating a major multimedia show in the grounds of the Château du Martroy.

The 40-minute show will display the flamboyant Napoleonic epic on the walls of the Château, with monumental images perfectly chiselled to fit the architecture of the place, with sleek sound design, original music and dialogues carried by famous voices. The whole show is built around a scenario designed just like a fast-paced film, by no means linear, sometimes accelerating, sometimes slowing down, with spectacular and epic shots, and more intimate moments.

Napoleon will reveal himself in an unprecedented way, through the eyes and prism of two of his closest companions: literary man Count Daru, and General Armand de Caulaincourt. Two illustrious characters whose descendants are the current owners of the Château du Martroy, and who will introduce an exclusive, captivating, surprising reading of the history of the Eagle. An original artistic approach, a fascinating scenographic concept marking the strong link between the site and the Napoleonic epic.

Practical information:

  • the show starts at 9.30 pm,
  • free admission.
