Cabaret des Années Folles


It is the end of the night in an old Cabaret theatre in Hong Kong. The chairs are up on the tables. A young local man works for the owner, Madame Bergère, a really old French woman. She has told him about all the people she loved in her long life, all the French artists from the 1920's and 1930s she admired: Joséphine Baker, Mistinguett, Maurice Chevalier, Fréhel, Jean Cocteau, Edith Piaf…

Through the power of magic they all return for the night to perform the greatest burlesque show in French Cabaret ever! Imagine breathing in the atmosphere of France in a Hong Kong Theatre! Today many of us are under pressure from work and responsibilities, but Le French May believes that everybody has hidden sparkle in their hearts. Let us help illuminate your inner sparkle with a glamorous French Cabaret.

Theatre Noir is delighted to present "Cabaret des Années Folles" in an unimaginably exciting way that gives audiences a genuine feeling of being transported back to the old days of Paris Cabaret. This is the Company's first collaboration with the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau and also their first trilingual performance.
