To mark the centenary of Gustave Eiffel's death, the Eiffel Tower has teamed up with artist Michael Canitrot for a unique artistic collaboration, offering a rediscovery of the monument through a unique fusion of heritage, electronic music and artistic performance.
On December 27, 2023, the anniversary of Gustave Eiffel's death, this audio-visual concert will be broadcast on television and social networks.
This collaboration brings to a close an exceptional year punctuated by events paying tribute to Gustave Eiffel and his work.
After the success of five sold-out dates for his Monumental Tour project, including performances at Nancy's Place Stanislas in front of more than 22,000 people and the first date in Italy at Genoa's Palazzo Ducale in front of more than 10,000 people, DJ and producer Michael Canitrot closes 2023 on a high note with this unprecedented performance in the heart of the Eiffel Tower.
For this exceptional show, Michael Canitrot will present an unprecedented artistic performance on the monument: a spellbinding DJ set oscillating between melodic techno and progressive house, accompanied by a grandiose light show with the participation of several guest artists including the "Spectre" choir, Yana Mann, mezzo-soprano singer, Ablaye Diop contemporary dancer passionate about electronic music and Yann Dulché, pianist fusing electro beats and classical notes. Award-winning actor Philippe Torreton will lend his voice to Gustave Eiffel, offering a moving interpretation to guide spectators on this sonic and visual journey.
An original creation that puts the monument in a new light, while paying tribute to Gustave Eiffel's audacity and creative genius.
The "Monumental Tour célèbre Eiffel" show will be broadcast on December 27, 2023, the anniversary of Gustave Eiffel's death, at 9pm as a preview on the Youtube and Facebook pages of Michael Canitrot and the Eiffel Tower, before its televised broadcast on the CSTAR channel at 10:50pm.
