In its new show Augustodunum offers you a magical journey through time to discover the history of Autun and Burgundy over more than 1500 years.
Come through the gates of time by diving into the memories of Dame Guigone, wife of Nicolas Rolin, and discover the poignant history of our beautiful Burgundy through its most beautiful treasures. You will be immersed in incredible moments such as a fabulous cavalry tournament, the construction of Autun cathedral and the great Roman games; all of this carried away in special effects and pyrotechnics.
To make this journey, we invite you to an exceptional place, the Roman theatre, a vestige of our history. Come and sit where your ancestors sat before you and soak up some of their history!
Augustodunum is 1000 costumes, 600 fireworks and a stage space the size of the Stade de France.
An exceptional show requires an exceptional voice to open the "doors of time":
Passionate about history, Stéphane Bern presents several programmes devoted to French history and heritage and in the 2000s became an emblematic figure in the audiovisual landscape. In order to strengthen his involvement in history and heritage and to ensure that his work is carried out over time, in 2016 he founded the "Fondation Stéphane Bern pour l'histoire et le patrimoine-Institut". This function is for him an opportunity to do useful work to encourage citizens to defend the teaching of History and to safeguard heritage. In this state of mind, it is quite natural that he accepted to lend us his voice for the prologue of our new show in Autun.
