Son et Lumier, Abbey Bon Repos, Nr Pontivy, France
1st - 11th of August
A run through History of the Abbey. With hundreds of people and animals involved, and being at night it has a great feel to it and really should be seen.
As night falls, the Abbey of Bon Repos comes alive with a prestiduous grand spectacle. 400 local people take part as extras and are guided by an impressive scene, which for 2 hours carries the spectator back in time in a spiral though history.
The war of fire, the digging of Nantes – Brest canal, the bloodthirsty Conomor, the Knights' Tournaments, the advent of the Abbey and the desperate battle of the “Bonnets Rouges”.
Illustrated by lively scenes, where tenderness and violence interlace. Each second, the story unfolds, elevated by pyrotechnic effects, and transcended by an enchanting musical band. A breathtaking show, rich in emotion is illustrated by giant images and where the unexpected awaits you.
