Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada presents: Piaf

When: Fri., Jan. 23, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Abandoned by her mother at birth, raised by her grandmother in a brothel, encouraged to sing by her street acrobat father, Edith Piaf became one of France’s most legendary singers of all times. Artistic Director Igor Dobrovolskiy and the exceptional dancers of Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada explore a life shrouded in mystery, love, and tragedy reflected in the authentic and life-inspired songs of the great Edith Piaf. The musical score features Edith Piaf’s inimitable voice and music, interspersed with classical selections from Fauré, Chopin, and others. Iconic songs include “La Vie en rose,” “Non, je ne regrette rien,” and “L’Hymne à l’amour.” The title role will be danced by Olga Petiteau of Paris, France.
