Pleine à craquer

Yes, the recital was in the great hall of mirrors at the palace. This photo was taken last Wednesday at about 20:45 hours before the rush. Needless to say, the hall ended up being packed. I had invited my Dad for Father's day! To answer Bob of Saint-Louis DP's question: the acoustics weren't too bad, I was surprised!

Oui, le récital a eu lieu dans la galerie des glaces mercredi dernier. Cette photo a été prise vers 20 h 45 avant le rush. Précision superfétatoire : la galerie s'est remplie jusqu'à craquer. J'ai emmené mon papa pour la fête des pères !

What a wonderful venue to enjoy music. I'm sure your father was thrilled to be there with his daughter.

You are so lucky to get to see these concerts. I really envy you this one. A beautiful voice in a beautiful setting. What could be better? :)

What a difference in musical program and setting. Listening to Bartoli here would be a delight. We just got home from a performance by So Percussion at the austere Pulitzer Foundation For The Arts here. Also delightful, but very unconventional.

Quelle délicieuse attention et quelle allure!

Randy said...

Lovely. I am envious that you saw this in person.

A wonderful treat for you Dad!

There's nothing like a great concert on a great setting! I remember in Prague going to concerts every day, not only for the music but also to know the palaces, theatres, synagogues and so on.

Oh wow Ciel, what a fabulous venue for such a concert, I bet you and your Dad had the best time. What a great Father's Day present. My son Dave and his wife Courtney arrive in Paris next week and I'm trying to persuade them to take a trip to Versailles to see the palace.

Doug Hickok said...

Wow, this must have been an amazing concert to see in person, and what a stupendous setting, in the great hall of mirrors!

That was definitely the best gift for your father...

Wow, spectacular Father's day gift!! I'd have a tough time watching the performance with all the distractions of the great hall.

What a good daughter to think of such a Fathers Day present.
