Description

A dance of water and light.

Designed by André Le Nôtre between 1671 and 1674, the Water Theatre Grove (Bosquet du Théâtre d'eau) is located in the gardens of the Château de Versailles, between the Star Grove and the Three Fountains. It was originally one of the richest and most complex of all the gardens. Following an international competition launched with garden designers to restore the Water Theatre Grove, the landscape architect Louis Benech and artist Jean-Michel Othoniel were chosen for the design of their contemporary art project which was later installed. Bring the family and discover a delightful walk that leads to a large clearing with a stunning play of light and water: Here you will find three sculpture-fountains. They seem to rest gently on the surface of the water, like blossoming flowers, and are composed of interlacing and golden arabesques and Murano beads.
