Renaissance dreams :

Night-time sound and light spectacular

at the Royal Château of Amboise

In an exceptional year, a show that will be just as much.

For 40 minutes, a romantic character, Nicolas, will take us in the wake of his life, and that of kings Charles 8, Louis 12 and François 1er, but also of the illustrious Leonardo da Vinci.
Nicolas, then a very young child, often walks in the evening on the site which sees the Heurtault and Minimes towers rise at the Château d'Amboise, as well as the Chapelle du Roy.
He joined his father there, a worker working for the then Project Manager, Raimond de Dezest. He likes to dream of dreaming that he too, one day, will make this monument exult!
While the new wing of the castle is being built, Nicolas, who has grown up and helps with the works, sometimes meets the young François who is staying in Amboise, promoted to a royal destiny.
A solid friendship will be forged between the two boys, and when François becomes King, he will take him with him, in his Italian campaign, to be inspired by these new horizons. Nicolas will come back steeped in the formidable ideas of the Renaissance.
From then on, Nicolas will be with his feet in the ground in Amboise, and his head in the Château! A place where he will make the exceptional acquaintance of the great Leonardo, whom he will help even in his craziest scenographies, such as the Fête du Paradis where he will supervise the construction of ingenious machinery.
And in a dazzling finale, Nicolas will deliver a secret Leonardo manuscript: a sort of ultimate testimony for future generations of what the spirit of Amboise, the spirit of the Renaissance, will spread around the world! An extremely contemporary painting, a visual signature resonating yesterday and today!
