ZARANBANDA

Opening Ceremony

Brussels, BEL

In the context of the Brussels International Show Jumping, LUC PETIT conceived, under the artistic direction of Franco Dragone, the opening spectacle of the important equestrian event: ZARABANDA.


The heart and soul of this original spectacle revolved around the story of a gipsy wedding. Evolving between magic and unconditional love, the spectacle evoked the values of the wedding and the pleasures of the party in a warm and colourful saraband, a harmonious mixture of joyous folk orchestras, brass bands and choirs, subtle interplay where the rhythm of the dance resounded as an echo to the horses’ hooves, a great poetic party, punctuated with fire, a worthy incarnation of the inner fire that enflamed the gipsies’ hearts. In this lovely illuminated evening, the soul of the party, a massive one, was shared with an audience that was enchanted, as though… under a spell.
