Nikki Nouveau presents the intriguing life and times of legendary Parisian artist Edith Piaf through song and story. Delivered in French and English, this spellbinding and romantic show features classic numbers Padam, La Vie En Rose, Non Je Ne Regrette Rien along with other timeless pieces.
No Regrets eloquently weaves a tale of passion, tragedy and triumph taking the audience on a musical journey through songs right from the earliest days of Piaf’s singing career, when she was singing on street corners, through to the peak of her career as the toast of Paris and New York, and finally her tragic untimely death. Featuring live music accompaniment by acclaimed Melbourne jazz-pianist Mark Fitzgibbon.
A must see for lovers of all things French and little sparrow fans!
