Composer Cole Porter is one of the stars of this bustling Paris which, in the aftermath of the First World War, has become the new darling of scenic art. The Theatre du Chatelet is offering a show called “Cole Porter in Paris” featuring his first songs.
The most francophile artist
Les Frivolités Parisiennes is offering a show for the end of the year featuring his first songs, before his return to the United States. At the Théâtre du Châtelet, “Cole Porter in Paris” offers us a musical account of the Parisian years of the most Francophile of American Broadway lyricists and composers, author of certain songs that we all have in mind without necessarily knowing that they are his own (My heart belongs to daddy, I’ve got you under my skin…). A kaleidoscope portrait, written and directed by Christophe Mirambeau, of an endearing and extravagant artist who fell in love with the capital after the First World War and became the idol of the Roaring Twenties (with a certain Joséphine Baker…).
Conceived as a picture book
In a minimalist and clever decor, the friendly company of Frivolités parisiennes dialogues in French and uses the standards of the musician in English, including the famous “I love Paris”. “Cole Porter in Paris” is conceived as a picture book, a sound and visual fresco that transports us to the Roaring Twenties, which evokes as much the personal journey of man and the artist as this new breath of life which irrigates Paris. at the end of the Great War.
