Piaf – The Songs, at the Pleasance London

Tuesday, 6 March, 2012

Wednesday, 14th March – Saturday, 17th March, 7.30pm

To mark the 50th anniversary of Edith Piaf’s death, Eve Loiseau sings the songs of Piaf with Fiona Barrow, violin and Edward Jay, accordion. The show features: La vie en rose, Sous le ciel de Paris, Bal dans ma rue, Autumn Leaves, Padam Padam as well as a narrative thread.

Edith Piaf has become synonymous with French Cabaret of the 1940s & 50s from her dramatic rise from Paris Street urchin to international star. Towards the end of her life, ravaged by pain and injury, Piaf tragically turned to drugs to find comfort and solace, never able to believe that she was indeed loved by thousands.

Tickets £15
