The national equestrian Academy of Versailles

intro

Created by Bartabas in the Grand Stable of the Palace of Versailles in 2003, the National equestrian Academy of Versailles is a very unique corps de ballet.

Its main originality lies in the confrontation of various artistic disciplines, such as dancing, singing, fencing or the Kyudo, traditional Japanese archery

Equestrian partitions

Equestrian partitions

We understand why the rider of Versailles chose Glass and his mesmerizing, stabbing partitions: the arithmetic of its music coincides in the perfection with the geometry and a symmetry of the led equestrian ballets squeezed by the riders of the equestrian Academy of Versailles, and the Roman theater takes on an air of garden of Lenôtre. - Françoise Monnet - Le Progrès -
Night Mares

Night Mares

'The Juments de la Nuit' (Night Mares) is the third show staged by Bartabas in Versailles, using the combined talents of the equestrian Academy of Versailles and of the troop of Zingaro. But for the first time, after 'The Chevalier Saint-George' and 'Voyage aux Indes Galantes', the theme of the show is not connected to the court of king of France.
