Vacation report 4: Sound and Light Show in Nancy
Back in April 1968 - just before the Student riots in Paris - he was there as a member of a Norwegian Theatre group during an international Theatre Festival.
We played Moliérs "Les femmes Savantes" - The Learned Ladies - in Norwegian for a French public. The Audience loved it and we won the Public Prize.
The Theatre - Opera de Lorraine, is situated in marvellous surroundings at
The Place Stanislas named after the king of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and duke of Lorraine Stanisław Leszczyński, Place de la Carrière, and Place d'Alliance were added on the World Heritage Sites list by the UNESCO in 1983.
During the Summertime it's a Sound and Light Show from 10:45 pm at Place Stanislas. The City Hall, Hotel de Ville, is suddenly the Screen for a show Papa has never seen the kind of. It's superb in all it's brilliance. Music and Pictures and animations and movies.About the history of Nancy. Just breathtaking. It's worth the journey to Nancy alone. Entrence is free.
Here are some photos from the show.
