As we are nearing the official opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, excitement is building. Last night a spectacular fireworks and a stunning audio-visual light show titled Vives Reflexions / Museum Reflections marked the upcoming opening. The show was created at the Louvre Abu Dhabi by French pyrotechnic wizards Groupe F. The dramatic and innovative show used the Jean Nouvel-designed building as both its backdrop and canvas, taking its audience on a voyage of discovery in four parts: from the depths of the water to the surface of the sea, onto the ground, and finally up into the skies.

In each act, different masterpieces from Louvre Abu Dhabi’s collection were revealed, projected across the building under an incredible firework display that lit up the night sky.
