To mark the 300th anniversary of the death of Louis XIV, the Château of Versailles hosted a soirée costumée in la Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors). As we walked through the royal gate and up to the marble courtyard, musiciens played and a welcome drink/champagne was served. Once inside, there were baroque dancers performing, aria concerts to attend, baroque dances to learn, and parlor games being played, not to mention the private apartments of the King and Queen & la Galerie des Glaces to stroll through – a very special evening of regal ambiance d’antan!
