Night on Bald Mountain is the piece we’ve chosen for our video mapping. It’s composer, Georges Moussorgsky, took his inspiration from a novel written by Nikolaï Gogol. It tells the story of a village visited by the devil at night. Nightmarish scenes succeed each other until the bell rings and everyting goes back to quietness.
In Sleepless Night, in full Light, the audience are watching a concert of A Night on Bald Mountain in front St Eugénie Church. In our version, the devil is replaced by a conductor.
During the show, he gets visions : musical notes become alive, musicians transform, instruments fly away, the church seems to be enchanted. Suddenly, the bell rings, the sun rises and the church is wrapped in a magical light.
