Carrières de Lumières
Posted on November 19th, 2016
The Alpilles hills south of Saint-Rémy de Provence are home to many ancient limestone quarries. At the village of Les Baux one former quarry has been transformed into a magical theatre of light where we went to see the current show on Marc Chagall, called Midsummer Night’s Dreams. Chagall’s works have been transformed into moving pictures projected onto many walls of the subterranean quarry. It is a stunning experience, accompanied by dramatic music and followed by a short show Alice’s Land inspired by Lewis Carroll.
