In the distance, a huge luminous ball appears in the follow spot’s beam.
Comfortably installed in her hammock as she would be in a flying palanquin, a princess kindly waves at the audience in her path.
Three aviators are driving the balloon from the ground, taking position around a central point, they let it fly on a higher altitude.
Up in the sky, the princess unlashes a big white ribbon
Then the acrobat makes an incredible performance as if it was the most natural way to go back to the ground…and finally disappears inside the ribbon.
The three aviators, under the charm of their queen, keep going their way and leave the playground.
