In 1682, Louis XIV conceived "Les soirées d'appartements" at Versailles. The newly built palace offered a magnificent backdrop for entertaining the members of his live-in court. The courtiers would come and dine, gamble, play cards and billiards and dance to works by Lully and his contemporaries.

An excellent excuse to turn the Lully room at the Ghent Opera into an "Appartement" where men and women of nobility can dance, and the Redoute into an "Appartement" where one can fritter away one's money at card games or gambling.
