2023 Nocturnes in the Garden
From 10 p.m. to midnight every evening in July and August, the Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire organises poetic, musical night-time walks through the heart of the International Garden Festival, whose theme in 2023 is “Resilient Garden”.
This unusual outing takes visitors on a poetic stroll with their families or friends, providing them with another vision of the Festival and reacquainting them with its layout. The gardens are transformed and the eye marvels at subtle reflections and shifting shadows. They take on another life, mysterious fairytale ambiences, underscored this year by streamed film music.
The International Garden Festival decks itself out in lights and music. Garden lighting is created using electroluminescent diodes, respectful of the environment and its fauna and flora, and solar energy lighting systems. To round off this dreamlike setting, film music poetically merges the art of gardens with the 7th art, carrying visitors off in its wake and leaving each of them free to conjure up their own movies in the balmy evening air.
