Le roi du néo-pop a la cour du roi soleil

Fun, different and – to many wedded to the idea of Versailles as an unchangeable historic entity – really rather shocking. And, while many are of the opinion that the French arts scene is in need of a bit of a shock, anyone who attempts to administer it could find himself with a fight on his hands.As le Figaro trumpeted, “Jeff the First will be the new Sun King of Versailles”. But will his show be hailed as the dawning of a new age, or will it be off with his head?

Well the head is still there!
