Derby Browne is Edith Piaf in PIGALLE
Date: 21st September
Price: €25.00 / €20.00 conc.
‘Without Love, there is nothing’- famously quoted the Little Sparrow, Edith Piaf.
Chanteuse Derby Browne performs her personal tribute to Edith Piaf, with classics such as ‘La Vie En Rose’, ‘No Regrets’, ‘Autumn Leaves’ and ‘Under The Bridges of Paris’.
Pigalle is packed with music from the cabarets and cafes of Paris, with romantic interludes from Parisian tea-shops, carnivals and market-places, portraying the diminutive chanteuse’s life of poverty from the streets of Paris slums, through Nazi occupation, to worldwide fame and notoriety.
Pigalle has all the ingredients to transport an audience back to the tragic yet sophisticated side of 1930’s/40’s Paris.
