Exposing Edith – A French cabaret inspired by Piaf

11 July 2017

Exposing Edith

Gather your friends together for a captivating night of cabaret and enjoy a little piece of Paris in Exposing Edith, coming to the Karralyka this Saturday 15 July.

In tribute to one of the greatest French singers of all time, this show charts the tragic life, and loves, of Edith Piaf through the songs that shot her to stardom, including La Vie en Rose, Milord and Non, je ne regrette rien.

Interspersed with stories of Edith Piaf’s life and the origins of her famous vintage pop songs, Exposing Edith takes you into the glamour and grit of Parisian life in the 20th century.

Follow Piaf from the street to the great music halls, through her loves and losses, her tragedies and successes and a life driven by passion and devotion to her audience.

Created and performed by Michaela Burger on vocals and accompanied on acoustic guitar by Greg Wain, the show is a stunning mix of authentic, vintage French pop and contemporary sounds.

Having explored the undertones of Piaf’s vocals and lyrics, Burger and Wain have created their own unique interpretations of the French singer’s work, using voice and acoustic guitar and the subtle use of loop, delay, and effect pedals.

Direct from critically acclaimed seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Leicester Square Theatre, Adelaide Fringe Festival and Auckland International Cabaret Festival, as well as winner of Best Cabaret Adelaide Fringe 2016 and nominated for a Helpmann Academy award, Exposing Edith is perfect for those wishing to immerse themselves in some vintage French nostalgia, and will leave you wanting to book the next flight to Paris!

Exposing Edith is on at Karralyka on Saturday 15 July at 7.30pm. Tickets are $75 each and includes a two-course dinner and show held in the Karralyka Banquet Room.
