The night of light installations will be held in Gatchina Park on August 3. The park will be divided into five zones, in each of which from 11 pm to morning they will show light-musical and pyrotechnic performances with the participation of theater and dance troupes.
Fire theaters will perform on Love Island, a hologram reconstruction of the naval battle will be shown on the ruins of the Admiralty, and a love story will be told on the Birch House and Mask portal to the music of Mendelssohn from the Midsummer Night's Dream suite. The observation platforms of the park are also involved: they will lay a special night route from the Plaza to the Birch Gate.
Fountains will also become water screens for light projections. At night they will turn on a cracker at the Jordanian well, it will pour over everyone who wants to scoop up water from the spring.
The "Night of Light" on White Lake will end with fireworks and a show to the accompaniment of a virtual laser orchestra performing music by Tchaikovsky. Swans will swim across the lake, and images of Russian emperors will be projected onto the facade of the Gatchina Palace.
Tickets for the night cost 100 rubles, and they will begin to sell them on July 17.
