French music icon Edith Piaf is legendary, her story of resilience, tenacity and passion told time and time again both on film and onstage. Now, let Sing’theatre bring you on a musical journey telling of Piaf’s life and music, as No Regrets, a Tribute to Edith Piaf transports you to the intimacy of a Parisian cabaret this April!
Hosted and narrated by Hossan Leong, the revue will take audiences on a musical journey through Edith Piaf’s Paris and the events that marked her life. From her troubled childhood to her meteoric rise as a singing sensation, through her many love affairs and emotional struggles, she triumphed to become the highest paid singer in the world. It will showcase a repertoire of 20 songs, in French and English, among them classics such as La vie en Rose, No Regrets and The Three Bells. Through these songs, each performer will portray a different aspect of Piaf’s life, showing a woman of both great strength and frailty.
“This is a universal story that will touch, move, and inspire anyone. I hope that this show will serve as a glimmer of light in this time of darkness and inspire Singaporeans to press on.” – Nathalie Ribette, Founder of Sing’theatre
“Edith Piaf is proof that anything is possible in life as long as you fight for it! Proof that you can make your dream come true. It is a message of hope! This is a very inspiring story. It has inspired me many times and it still inspires me! This is not a French story, but a universal story that will touch, move, and inspire anyone. I hope that this show will serve as a glimmer of light in this time of darkness and inspire Singaporeans to press on,” explains Nathalie Ribette, Founder of Sing’theatre and the Director and Producer of this tribute.
No Regrets, a Tribute to Edith Piaf will feature a stellar cast of performers including established theatre talents Hossan Leong, Mina Ellen Kaye, Rebekah Sangeetha Dorai, as well as 18-year-old sensation Maya Raisha and a special appearance by international star Sofia Poston (Matilda) who is only 11 years old! The singers will be accompanied a 4 member live band, a real treat in these times!
