The Concierges' Gazette
After 4 month of renovation, the Lido re-opens his door and presents a new revue, more sumptuous than ever: “Paris Merveille”. Production, scene, rhythm, costume, scenery and music: the mythic Parisian cabaret is reborn thanks to all its talents, among the best of the world!
Franco Dragone, cofounder of the Cirque du Soleil and creator of several shows presented in Las Vegas and Macao, has imagined this new revue Haute Couture, inspired by the glamor of the Parisian women and the chic “à la française”. In “Paris Merveille”, the entire city of Paris is highlighted, appearing in different forms and paying tribute to the elegance and the treasures of the French capital. The rhythmical choreographies by Benoît Swan Pouffer, one the greatest dance talents, and Jane Sansby, the ballet Mistress, are executed by the Bluebells Girls and the Lido Boys at a frenetic pace.
Nicolas Vaudelet, a Haute-Couture lover who worked with Dior, Louis Vuitton, Christian Lacroix, Givenchy and Jean-Paul Gaultier has invented all the costumes by combining both modernity and classicism, to enhance and respect the materials. For this new show, more than 600 costumes have been made, and among them a prom dress in fibre optic or a giant crinoline for the lead dancer. Moreover, the modern and innovative music by Yvan Cassar and the enchanting settings, with the technologic and artistic prowess of Jean Rabasse, which will complete this new production which will soon become a must-see.
To enjoy even better this wonderful evening, the Chef Philippe Lacroix will delight you with three formulas, with or without Champagne: the Champagne-Show at 3 pm, 9 pm or 11 pm (115 Euro per person), the Lunch-Show at 1 pm (165 Euro per person) or the Dinner-Show at 7 pm (between 165 and 300 Euro per person, 400 Euro for a private box).
