A First at L’International des Feux Loto-Québec presented by TELUS on Saturday
“Voilà !”: an exciting show by a competitor officially representing Québec/Canada!
Montréal, Thursday, July 23, 2009 – Royal Pyrotechnie will make history on Saturday at L’International des Feux Loto-Québec presented by TELUS as the first combined Québec/Canada competitor ever at this prestigious event. These pyrotechnic artisans from the town of Saint-Pie in the Montérégie region of southwest Québec have vowed to display their fireworks know-how to the full in a show where music gives free expression to the imagination of one and all – a strategy that bore fruit for Royal Pyrotechnie in 2003 when – representing Canada alone – it won a Gold Jupiter!
According to the show’s creator, Yanick Roy, “Voilà !” builds on the success that has been the hallmark of his shows since Le ciel ne peut attendre (Heaven Can Wait) six years ago: an excellent soundtrack by Serge Péloquin, mixed live with plenty of rhythm and, of course, perfectly harmonized with the most diverse, stunning, and original fireworks display imaginable! “I’m pretty sure that some of the pieces, which come from all over the world, have never been displayed before… so the way we set them off will be a first, too!” states Roy. And, indeed, two towers – each about 20 metres high – have been erected on one of the ramps and seven floating docks have been deployed on lac des Dauphins, a few metres from the stands at La Ronde.
Royal Pyrotechnie boasts wins at all international fireworks competitions held in Québec, displaying on its “mantelpiece” a “Zeus” prize from the 2004 event at Lac-Leamy, a “Solstice” prize from 2007 in Québec City, and, of course, a magnificent Gold Jupiter won in Montréal. Not to mention a special jury prize last year in Cannes!
Yanick Roy’s comments can be heard online on L’International’s web site (www.internationaldesfeuxlotoquebec.com). The site also lists the 16 musical selections that will rock La Ronde on Saturday.
