Wonderful event. The sound and light show under the dome was magical and a different way to experience space. Architecturally and historically beautiful. Very pleased I was able to experience it.

The sheer scale of the experience, both visually and aurally, is a technical and artistic feat. Very well organized too, and a most gracious welcome....you said, Paris? Lol

The music accompanies the various scenes, but I'd have liked some historical commentary in addition to the music. But it's spectacular! A must-see!

Enthralling evening at Dôme des Invalides

As the sun dips below the Paris skyline, prepare for an exclusive nighttime entry to the iconic Dôme des Invalides, an architectural masterpiece of French history. Start with a stroll through the monument's illustrious hallways, reflecting the glow of the setting sun, before being ushered into the heart of the monument for the much-awaited Aura Invalides show. This 50-minute spectacle is an ingenious blend of orchestral music and video mapping, creating a mesmerizing display of lights, sound systems, and special effects that breathe new life into the Dôme's heritage.

Journey through time and architecture

The Aura Invalides show is more than just a light show; it is a journey through time and the architectural splendor of Dôme des Invalides. As the show unfolds, you'll be drawn into a series of stunning tableaux, each highlighting different aspects of the Dôme's architecture, from Napoleon I's tomb to the decorative painting on the soaring 90m vaulted ceiling. The monument, rightly considered part of Paris's DNA, is revealed under a fresh light, its golden dome magnifying the immersive show's thrilling energy. This immersive, collective experience, exclusively revealed after sunset, offers a fresh perspective on the unmissable Dôme des Invalides, making it an extraordinary experience for history buffs and casual tourists alike.
