Best Loire Valley Chateau Son-et-Lumiere?

In three weeks, we'll be staying at the Domain des Hauts-de-Loire near Blois for four days. I know that many of the Chateaux have Son-et-Lumiere shows but can't tell from the descriptions which one we'd like best. Can anyone recommend one?

I've only been to Le Lude's, so I can't compare. However, I enjoyed it very much. It was particularly memorable for its live characters, horsedrawn carriages etc which added to the pageantry.

I've only been to Blois' and enjoyed it very much. I liked the way the images were projected to work with the architectural features of the castle.

I believe they run an English night which would have made it even more interesting. I only saw it in French, but didn't mind.

Two summers ago we saw the show at Amboise. Loved it. Colorful, cast of many, storyline wasn't difficult too follow. We did freeze that night--shorts/sweatshirt weren't quite enough.
I made reservations over the internet from the USA and picked up our tickets just outside the castle the afternoon of the performance.
