2023 Cabaret Fringe Festival - 26th May to 4th June
Rating: M - Mature
Experience an evocative musical journey set in Paris during the era of artists, romance and bohemian life. The allure of Montmartre inspired many famous artists from Salvador Dali to Toulouse-Lautrec and films such as Amelie and Moulin Rouge. An openly romantic and nostalgic time of decadence, typified by the cafes where the bohemia of Paris dream and where night birds and cabaret singers thrive. A time when artists sip on absinthe musing over the books they would write, symphonies they would compose and masterpieces they would paint. This captivating show weaves intimate tales of the lives transformed by Paris’ most notorious district. Set to a beautiful soundscape of song and story featuring the iconic music of Cole Porter, Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf, along with original scores. Sung in French and English by Nikki Nouveau with piano by David McEvoy.
