Parlez-moi d’amour! | Institut français du Royaume-Uni

Thu 6 Dec / A Gala Recital with Dame Felicity Lott and Jason Carr

Parlez-moi d’amour!

Felicity Lott and stage director Laurent Pelly joyously subvert the codes of the classical concert, by proposing a very original performance, midway between cabaret review and one-woman show.

With her inimitable chic, Dame Felicity Lott, accompanied by pianist Jason Carr, will enchant with a wide musical array: timeless classics by Offenbach, Broadway dazzle courtesy of Americans Stephen Sondheim and Richard Rodgers, and a hint of French charm with Benabar, Mireille, and more. Airs from operas, musical comedies, Lieder, songs, anything goes. From young waif led astray to bitter old spinster, this most Francophile of British singers speaks to us of love in all its forms, in a big acting number that mixes refined elegance with unhinged fantasy.

Followed by a champagne reception in the presence of the artists.

Concert & reception: £80 | Concert only: £40 | Dress code: cocktail

This concert is a fundraiser for the forthcoming ‘It’s All About Piano’ festival in March. The festival programme will be announced exclusively on this very special occasion.
