The Segal Centre for Performing Arts
5170 ch. de la Côte-Ste-Catherine, Montreal, Quebec H3W 1M7
The story and music of Marlene Dietrich and Edith Piaf comes to the Segal Centre!
Featuring 20 of their classic songs including “La vie en rose”, “Non, je ne regrette rien”, and “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”, this European smash hit brings these two iconic performers to the stage with charm and wit to spare. Audiences will be enthralled by the untold story of the connection between these two larger-than-life characters, who, between them, had a friendship, a love, and a catalogue of incredible songs that has stood the test of time. Piaf was the original diva, before the term even existed, while the German Dietrich was a showbiz chameleon who reinvented herself countless times over an eight-decade-long career. Their complex relationship blazed with passion and soared to dizzying highs as well as crashed to desperate lows but always hit a thrilling dramatic note. Together, they found a common rhythm, common ground, and even a common love.
Tickets are on sale now at 514.739.7944 or at segalcentre.org.
