This is a celebration of Edith Piaf in 2015 – the 100th anniversary of her birth.

Edith Piaf has become synonymous with French Cabaret of the 1940s and 50s and remains France’s most popular singer.

Piaf’s life was the stuff of legend, from her dramatic rise from Paris street urchin to star of international renown.

Her life, however, was anything but ‘La vie en rose’. In the centenary year of Piaf’s birth, this powerful celebration comes from a company whose credentials include Kneehigh Theatre and Canteve Vocale.

This acclaimed show has played more than 100 venues and festivals around the UK and abroad.

The show features La vie en rose, Sous le ciel de Paris, Bal dans ma rue, Autumn Leaves, Padam Padam, C’est merveilleux, L’accordéoniste, Non je ne regrette rien and more.

Since her debut at the Royal Festival Hall in February 2002, Eve Loiseau has given recitals inEngland, New York and France and has featured on BBC R3, WNYC Radio, PMW Music and the BBC production, The Roman Mysteries.

Eve performs with Canteve Vocale and the baroque ensemble, Duo Dolcetini.
