It has opened its doors to the public on may 15, 1889. In 2019, for its 130 years, the iron Lady puts on her most beautiful clothes of lights. From may 15 to 17, the public will be able to admire 22h, 23h and midnight, a show of sound (22h and 23h only) and light twelve minutes.
The projections of the lasers will light up its lace of steel, the strobes give the illusion of a dance, and highlight her beautiful curves. What to put on a show worthy of the greatest leaf thinning! And like any gambill in good and due form, the evening radiant will be to the rhythm of a soundtrack specially chosen for the event.
Bruno Seillier lights, Jeanne Added-to-music
The staging of this show lit up was entrusted to the stage designer Bruno Seillier. His sense of space and depth, he had already earned a hero’s welcome at the cathedral of Notre-Dame in 2017 and 2018, for his show “queen of Heart”, bringing together more than 200,000 spectators. This time, the work envisioned by the director is carried out in partnership with EDF, which has put in place the technical means rarely deployed on the tower.
A soundtrack of its surprise will accompany the dance dream of the monument. A merry mix of musical styles, which should convene for classical music and other genres to “tell the story of the tower”, from the construction to the present day, ” says Alice Beunardeau, in charge of communication.
For the opening night, the singer Jeanne Added, doubly-rewarded Victoires de la musique this year, will give a concert of original and already complete, from 19h on the square. Those who have not booked will be able to watch the performance streamed live on the page Facebook of the Eiffel Tower.
A tribute to Notre-Dame de Paris
The Operating Company of the Eiffel Tower, considered the cathedral as its predecessor, and it would have been almost inappropriate not to consider it in this day of anniversary and in this time of recollection. A lady to another, in all courtesy, Bruno Seillier promises and a wink from the iron Lady to Our Lady.
This festive feast will take place with 500 projectors green, which allows the organisers we put on a show while consuming two times less than the lighting normal of the monument. A beautiful initiative.
