The Sun King dances: Academy of Ancient Music and baroque dance experts Mary Collins and Steve Player recreate the sounds and sights of the court of Louis XIV of France.

Versailles, 1700: where all arts revolved in brilliantly choreographed splendour around the monarch they called The Sun King. Historical dance experts Mary Collins and Steve Player join Academy of Ancient Music to pay homage to Louis XIV of France, a king for whom music and political power were all part of the same resplendent dance.
