For the second in a row, Stéphane Bern will host La Grande Soirée du 31 on France 2. The host offers a show mixing entertainment and heritage for the New Year, this Friday, December 31, 2021.
After the success of La Grande Soirée du 31 à Versailles for the transition to the year 2021, France 2 once again entrusts its New Year’s Eve of December 31 to Stéphane Bern. This time, the animator will welcome the artists on the circular stage of the Grandes Écuries at the Château de Chantilly.
In an interview with Télé Cable Sat, Stéphane Bern explains the choice of location: “I believe that my desire to promote the national heritage has been heard. Because it’s not just Paris! “
He explains: “Chantilly contains the second collection of paintings in France after that of the Louvre. And the Grandes Écuries were wanted by Louis-Henri de Bourbon, Prince of Condé, because he thought of reincarnating as a horse! This fantasy has become a dream of stones which lends itself perfectly to such a spectacle ”.
This evening will be staged by Kamel Ouali. Stéphane Bern declares that “this is a show for all generations”. He adds: “I am happy to be able to open the doors to a magical and inaccessible place for many, to offer them a part of a dream. I don’t save lives, but television is the family of some ten million people, alone or sick or unable to move. We are the window open to the world ”.
Clara Luciani, Pascal Obispo, Nolwenn Leroy, Zaz, Juliette Armanet, Bénabar, Gérard Lenorman, Julien Doré, Nicoletta, Garou, Tayc, Corneille, Ofenbach, Shouse, Valentina, Enzo, Carla, Angélina, Dany Brillant, Véronic Dicaire, Vincent Niclo , Chico & the Gypsies, Céphaz and Gautier Capuçon are part of this great evening for the transition to 2022.

Soon, France 3 will broadcast For the Honor of a Son, a fiction in which Stéphane Bern “plays a soldier whose son has been murdered”. The host of Secrets d’Histoire had previously filmed in Meurtres en Lorraine in 2018.
The host has other fictional projects: “I have finished shooting Bellefond which could become a recurring one. This is a prosecutor who has committed a miscarriage of justice and who, to redress his fault, becomes a lawyer. “
Stéphane Bern thinks “this is the moment, that this is the last chapter of my working life, the last time I can try things that I haven’t done yet” about fiction. He even admits to having “a fictional writing project …” and “looking for producers”. It is also “in development of the second episode of Bellefond”.
