Edith Piaf has become synonymous with French Cabaret of the 1940s & 50s and remains France's most popular singer. Piaf's life was the stuff of legend, from her dramatic rise from Paris street urchin to star of international renown. Her life, however, was anything but 'La vie en rose'. Towards the end of her life, ravaged by pain and injury, Piaf turned to drugs to find comfort and solace, never able to believe that she was indeed loved by countless thousands of fans the world over.
'Absolutely wonderful arrangements! And as for that Piaf singer - amazing. She is better than the real thing, and I don't say that lightly.' John Hardy, composer & Bafta Cymru award winner
'Travelled from North Wales for the show at Warwick Arts Centre on Sunday night.....worth every mile and more- really enjoyed the evening. Thank you all ( thanks extend to the wonderful audience too!)' Hazel Campbell
