LES ROUTES DE LA LIBERTÉ
SEE COMPLETE VIDEO
By following in the footsteps of emblematic figures and thanks to the participation of over 120 extras, the 30,000 spectators in attendance at the evening were plunged into the heart of the battle of the Ardennes. From the hell of that winter in 44-45 to the cold war, all the way to the fall of the Berlin wall.
Images of fire and light blazed over Mardasson hill, and snow swirled around above the audience. Before them, the interlacing stories played out of two soldiers, one American and one German, a nurse and a little girl, taking a human approach to this battle in spite of its cruelty.
This show, entitled “Les Routes de la Liberté” (“The Roads to Freedom”), then made way for hope, in the form of poetic scenes that combined aerial ballet and dance, before a masterful final act that brought all the clans together and symbolised the unity of peoples and of Europe.
Images to remember
Words to be understood
A living fresco never to be forgotten
