With its latest revue, the famous Parisian cabaret takes you to wonderland...
This spring, the event that is creating a buzz all over town is the reopening of the Lido. The landmark cabaret on the world’s most beautiful avenue has kept everyone in suspense for four months whilst it has created a brand new show and had a makeover.
Whilst every square centimetre of the cabaret hall has been overhauled and renewed, the new troupe for the revue ‘Paris Merveilles’ has worked unrelentingly under the direction of Franco Dragone. Renowned for his staging of events, and artistic director of the Cirque du Soleil, Dragone was chosen to create the Lido’s 27th revue
This collaboration has given rise to a unique revue, which was surrounded by total secrecy right up to the evening of the première … because the Lido has taken risks with this new show, which will run for the next 10 years!
Although it has retained its essential DNA – the Bluebells, feathers, the music and sequins are still there –, it has put the emphasis on extravagance to magnify and reinvent the art of the revue. Ultra-modern technology, original scenography and elements in the show that are as varied as they are unexpected all bring an extraordinary dimension to ‘Paris Merveilles’.
Seven outstanding dances, the Sublimes, lead the revue, plunging the audience into a romantic, glamorous and phantasmagorical Paris. Some twenty tableaux follow on one after the other, taking another look at mythical Paris, in alternating registers ranging from intimacy to big show time. Everything is presented at a hectic pace in the most festive of atmospheres! The French cancan makes its great comeback on the stage of the Lido. A moment of pure pleasure with euphoria at its height in the concert hall.
In total, ‘Paris Merveilles’ provides 1hr45 of surprises and keeps its promise: to give the public a truly memorable evening, a dazzling sight.
