As a reminder, Le Grand Bleu highlighted the the successful collaboration, started a few years earlier, between the movie director Luc Besson and his composer Eric Serra. A brilliant duet that met a certain consecration, at multiple times rewarded, within a Victoire de la Musique music award, a César for the best film music, among numerous other certifications in many countries. It’s not a mystery that the atmospheric and hypnotic music contributed very much to the legend of this cinematographic masterpiece. For instance, thanks to the application of adequat electronic synthesizers, the composer managed to transcribe the blue atmosphere of the abyssal depths from the Mediterranean Sea, into a musical beauty.  Then, those synthetic sounds somehow remind us of whale songs and create an incredible feeling of evasion, easily recognizable just after a few seconds of listening of this soundtrack, that has become as cult as its related movie.

The illustrious French composer of the soundtrack of this popular 80s movie, Eric Serra invites you to feel again this marine experience, the time of a fairy night. Thus, with this immersive show, you would have a good reason to get bewitched by another way to reinterpret a cinematographic artwork, with the employment of modern technology.

At this occasion, you could attend a live musical performance lead by Eric Serra and his musicians, which they identically perform the original soundtrack on stage and this during the screening of the film Le Grand Bleu, for a total innovative experience.
