With over 100 sell-out shows across three continents, Piaf! The Show celebrates the centenary of French music's ultimate grande dame. Anne Carrere brings to life Edith Piaf's extraordinary career and character, and above all her voice and songs - La Vie en Rose, L'Hymne à L'Amour, Milord and of course Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien - with which she triumphed over adversity. Part inspired by 2007's Oscar-winning biopic, Carrere conjures an uncanny reincarnation of this music legend across two acts, charting Piaf's rags-to-riches trajectory from the streets of Pigalle to the world's top stages. With a superb four-piece band and atmospheric backdrop projections featuring previously unseen photographs, this ever-popular show is the perfect tribute to one of France's greatest international stars and the Paris of her day. "Carrere's extraordinary stage presence evokes Piaf at her greatest, and at her most vulnerable" Buenos Aires Herald Piaf! The Show will be performed at Wales Millennium Centre as part of Festival of Voice, a new international festival in Cardiff next June. Created by Wales Millennium Centre and supported by Arts Council of Wales, Colwinston Charitable Trust and Cardiff Council.
