Discover the Sparkling Pyrotechnic Show 'Space' at La Défense

At La Défense, the business district of Paris, a new and exciting show will soon be performed in the open air.  The show is called 'Space,' and audiences can watch for free as pyrotechnics, 3D effects and sounds are unleashed into the Parisian night sky.

On Friday, September 20, 2013, guests staying at one of the Grands Hôtels Parisiens can check out this often undiscovered neighborhood during their trip to Paris. This is the third year that a free light show has been organized at La Défense, in a large square called the Parvis de la Défense. This year, the show has been conceived by an agency called Les Petits Français. The result is a 40-minute spectacle that explores the origins of the universe and reveals human attempts to conquer the skies.

The soundtrack for the show was composed specially for this event. In addition to a musical score that has never been heard before, the audience will also get to experience extraordinary 3D special effects techniques that will dazzle spectators of all ages. This unique event is something that visitors do not always have the chance to see, so those in Paris during the month of September should not miss out on this opportunity.

One of the unique elements of the show is that it is also grounded in science. In order to do this, the organizers enlisted the help of Dr. Christophe Galfard, who has a PhD in physics and is reputed for his capacity to transmit his extensive knowledge in a comprehensible manner to wider audiences.

The show begins at 9:30 p.m. when the darkness of the sky will provide the perfect backdrop for the lights and sounds of 'Space.' Moreover, the Arche de la Défense a large arch monument in the middle of the square, is impressively featured in the show. After exploring the more frequented parts of Paris, a trip to La Défense to witness the 'Space' 3D pyrotechnic show can provide a fittingly spectacular end to a day of sightseeing.
