Highlights: Cabaret - The Musical

Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome... If there is one show that you simply cannot miss this winter, it’s the musical Cabaret at Lido2Paris! The famous former cabaret hall of the Champs-Élysées presents the cult-classic musical, based on the play by John Van Druten and the book Goodbye to Berlin by English writer Christopher Isherwood. Plus, it’s in its glorious original version (that means in English)!

 

The musical will be directed by the brilliant Canadian Robert Carsen, who has already staged other famous musicals such as Singin'in the Rain and My Fair Lady at the Théâtre du Châtelet, in addition to his work on numerous operas across the globe. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet Sally Bowles and the entrancing dancers of the Kit Kat Klub in the showing of the musical, Cabaret!

Story: Cabaret - The Musical

Berlin. The Weimar Republic is in its final months. Sally Bowles, a singer at the Kit Kat Klub cabaret, meets uptight intellectual Clifford. A tumultuous relationship arises between them, set against the backdrop of the rise of the NSDAP – the Nazi party. We are plunged into the pre-war Berlin, where pleasure is king, but tension is growing… The dancers twirl around on the summit of a volcano that threatens to erupt… Songs, dance interludes, parties, and love stories are the glorious ingredients of Cabaret, a musical that has now achieved cult status and currently performing in English at Lido2Paris!

Le Lido2Paris


With its pristine location directly on the most famous street in Paris, the Lido lights up the Champs-Élysées with a spectacular show of a new type of shows for this venue… Musicals! In the 1920s, the venue was located just down the avenue from its current location and served as both a bathhouse and an entertainment venue for the working class. After World War II, it was purchased by two Italian-born brothers, Joseph and Louis Clerico, who opened the famous Lido cabaret in 1946. Inspired by Venetian luxury, the brothers chose to decorate the establishment with all the splendor of La Serenissima, and named it after one of its most famous beaches. Having quickly built a reputation as the Parisian nightlife Mecca, where one went both to see and to be seen, the Lido attracted talent from around the world, such as the famous Irish dancer Margaret Kelly and her troupe, the Bluebell Girls. With their extravagant costumes, the professional dancers quickly became an attraction in and of themselves. With a new wave of direction, the Lido cabaret with its glittery, glamorous Bluebell Girls ceased to exist in September 2022 and officially changed its name to Lido2Paris as well as announced their new focus on musicals. Although this may seem like nothing new, it is with absolute excitement that we can announce that the musicals Lido2Paris will be putting on will be musicals you only thought you would be able to see in your dreams! From December 2022 onwards, Lido2Paris will start their journey in producing high quality, internationally famous musicals with some of the greatest theatre performers and actors hailing from all corners of the world! The first of these is Cabaret, based on the play by John Van Druten and the book by Christopher Isherwood. This 1000-seat theatre still has an extraordinary machinery and a stage area equipped with the latest technology, making it a unique place that will always make the audience dream… Lido2Paris is officially bringing Broadway theatre to Paris!
