Paris: the Champs-Elysées illuminations will be launched by Clara Luciani

The Champs-Elysées committee has just announced that the illumination of the most beautiful avenue in the world will take place this year on November 21 under the sponsorship of singer Clara Luciani.

This year the installations will be placed under the sign of “Flamboyance”. The 400 or so plane trees on the avenue will put on their lights during a ceremony open to the public. A happy news since in 2020, the illumination had taken place behind closed doors given the health situation. Avenue des Champs-Elysées will be pedestrianized for the occasion.

Thus, after Louane in 2020 or Karl Largerfeld in 2019, it is the turn of the singer Clara Luciani to press the switch which will illuminate at 7.15 p.m. the most beautiful avenue in the world. During the ceremony, the godmother of the event will be surrounded by the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, but also by the president of the Champs-Elysées committee, Marc-Antoine Jamet.

The Champs-Elysées rediscover “the sense of celebration”

The Champs-Elysées committee explains having chosen Clara Luciani as godmother because the latter represents with her song Respire a “hymn of deconfinement and rediscovered freedom” that the committee wishes to advocate with illuminations which aim to “restore the meaning of the party ”in Paris.

The illuminations created by Blachère Illumination, a French company, will be in place until January 9, 2021. They will be lit every day from 5 pm to 2 am and all night long on Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Marc-Antoine Jamet recalls that the show is of course free and open to everyone.

The energy consumption of the illuminations was considered responsible and will represent 23,400 Kwh over the entire period. This corresponds to the annual consumption of a family of four living in a small apartment.
