Blockbuster Music Experience PIAF! The Show has Calgary Premiere


CALGARY – The powerful and moving celebration of Edith Piaf’s life PIAF! The Show comes to Arts Commons as part of BD&P World Music on October 4, 2017 at 7:30pm in the Jack Singer Concert Hall.

Starring Anne Carrère, who has been called “Edith Piaf’s legitimate musical heiress” PIAF! The Show chronicles the life of the legendary French chanteuse through her own music.  Using images never before seen of Edith Piaf, this theatrical multimedia concert opens the BD&P World Music 2017-18 season.       

“I've seen the show at least 200 times and it is always like seeing it for the first time,” says producer and director Gil Marsalla. “It's so emotional for me. Anne is perfect for this role and in my 25 years in show business, I am not afraid to say that Anne Carrère is one of the 10 best female voices in the entire world." 

PIAF! The Show has received rave reviews across the globe, performing in over 30 countries to rapt audiences.  

Watch PIAF! The Show on stage at Carnegie Hall in celebration of the 60 year anniversary of Edith Piaf performing for the last time on that very same stage.
