The Lido de Paris, the iconic cabaret on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées had a makeover in 2015 to put together a dazzling new revue. Signed by Franco Dragone, the internationally-renowned artistic director, and creative director at the Cirque du Soleil, this ultra-modern new show ‘Paris Merveilles’ follows on from previous Lido revues – the Bluebells, the costumes and amazing stage sets, the music and sequins are all still there –, but it reinvents the codes of the genre by placing an emphasis on extravagance and cutting-edge technology. With its original scenography and acts as varied as they are unexpected, this latest of Parisian revues offers the public a wonderful spectacle.
