Lycabettus Theater – 09/15/2010 – 21:00

Earlier in the year, Life in Pink and Black’s musical tribute to Edith Piaf sold-out 3 performances at Megaro Mousiki, Athens Concert Hall. Now they’re returning to pay tribute to the life of the legendary French singer, this time under the stars at the open air theater on Lycabettus Hill. The original style of this dramatised musical biography, overflowing with Piaf’s immortal songs, recreates her life in an enjoyable and moving way.

Jacques Pessis, journalist, writer and music historian, recalls Piaf’s career in a light-hearted way by focusing on key events in her life. Nathalie Lhermitte and her wonderful voice bring the narration to life with the immortal songs of the great artist, accompanied by Aurélien Noël on accordion. The innovative direction of Rubia Matignon underscores the interaction between the narrator, the singer-actress and the musician, thus encouraging audience participation.

An entire generation made Piaf a myth, a legend – both words which came to be synonymous with her name. Three stars now simply and modestly offer a tribute to the legendary and immortal Edith Piaf.

Don’t miss this tribute to Edith Piaf on 15 September at the Lycabettus Theatre in Athens, Greece.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
