Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 14 June 2014

Songs and stories from the Paris Lido

In a city famed for its sophisticated nightlife, one venue stands out on the Champs-Elysees: The Paris Lido.

For five years French chanteuse Caroline Nin headlined the glamorous revue, Bonheur at this famous Cabaret. Each night she introduced her audiences to the longings, struggles and heartaches of life in a Paris cabaret with Nin at once the mistress and muse. Her smoky jazz-inflected voice delighted audiences from around the world as she celebrated the multicultural side of Paris as well as its romantic and the seamy underworld.

With songs from Brel, Legrand and Gainsbourg, Piazzolla, Grace Jones and Kurt Weill. including such favourites as Whatever Lola Wants and Mein Herr, Nin brings the passion and brilliance that you loved in Hymne a Piaf to create a night in the Lido you will never forget.
