Chansons D’Amour - 120 years of French Cabaret
A kaleidoscopic performance that brings to life the passionate Edith Piaf and the Parisian connection. A cutting edge look at Paris with Piaf and her contemporaries.
The show is a tribute to the legendary musical icons of French cabaret, with a selection of Edith Piaf’s evocative and much loved songs, including Mon Dieu, Le Gitan Et La Fille , witty delivery of L’homme A La Motto, and hot Cuban sauce on La Foule… Also, Charles Trenét’s evergreen Quereste'til; Jacque Brel’s heart-wrenching If You Go Away; and Juliétte Greco’s description of naughty Paris, Paris Canaille, garnished with Yves Montand’s sexy delivery of Autumn Leaves, Charles Aznavour like you’ve never heard him before in La Yiddishe Mamma, Michel Legrand’s heartfelt duet, Django Reinhardt’s bluesy Nuages and George Brassens with his naughty Brave Margot...
Dahlia interprets the music of the greats with added stories from her experience, travelling the world for many years, helped by “hot” musicians: Marcello Maio’s great artistry (piano, accordion), Mark Harris’ musicality and ‘joi de vivre' (bass, vocals), Eddie Bronson’s virtuosity (sax, clarinet, accordion)
Dahlia Dior began her international career at Paris' Olympia and prominent London clubs, she also studied at London’s RADA.
Dahlia performed in the best hotels throughout South East Asia, including Hong Kong, Tokyo, Bangkok, Manila, Jakarta, Bali...
She also graduated with Masters in Musicology, from Macquarie University, Sydney & over the years performed with Ray Charles, Matt Monroe, Blood, Sweat and Tears…
What the critics say:
Seven acclaimed Australian Divas came together in a concert event at the Sydney Opera House to pay tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, otherwise known as “The queen of Jazz”.
And who could be more Ella than Dahlia Dior? Her sassy delivery was sophisticated yet fearlessly bold in songs like "Nice Work If You Can Get It”, “They All Laughed”, "Someone to Watch Over Me" and “Stompin' at the Savoy". It was a bewitching performance. GMV Weekend Notes
"Dahlia’s versatility across, jazz, cabaret, chanson, torch songs and much more, knows virtually no bounds. Famous and not-so-famous songs are worn together with biographical excerpts: it’s as if that little sparrow has confided a few secrets... Dior’s fragrant recreation of the mood and disposition of France’s ‘national popular singer’ will transport you back to her heroic beginnings. Dahlia is a consummate performer; an astonishing singer, with a commanding theatrical presence. This show alone is one which should be seen in Paris and all over the world. Wherever La Momme Piaf is known and loved. It brings her back to life. ‘Padam, Padam, Padam!’ go the heartstrings". Showbiz critic
