THEME : "Fireworks, Music and Cinema"

A pyrotechnic and artistic relationship has existed between the Panzera company and the Festival of Pyrotechnic Art of Cannes for many years. This allowed the writing and the creation of a Fireworks dedicated to 3 anniversaries:

The 80th anniversary of the death of Maurice RAVEL,

The 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival,

And Fifty years ago, on August 24th 1967, the first firework set off of the pyrotechnic festival.

Commemorations of events illustrated, throughout the years, with narrated, musical and painted scenes, in the night of Cannes. Poetic journeys will take the audience through Ravel's work, the musical themes of the Palms of the Film Festival and the fireworks sparkling stars of the Festival of Pyrotechnic Art.
