An era of artists, romance and red lights.
Montmartre! Rendezvous in Paris presents an evocative musical journey depicting tales of lost love in the famous red light district of Paris, written and performed by Nikki Nouveau.
The allure of Montmartre inspired many famous artists from Picasso 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. Delivered in French and English with accompaniment by piano, accordion and violin.
