Performing Piaf (@ChristineBovill): from Belfast to Paris… @LyricBelfast

From this Thursday (20th June), music lovers in Belfast will have no fewer than four opportunities to experience The Lyric Theatre feeling more like a cabaret hall of 1940s Paris, courtesy of Christine Bovill.

Bovill’s Edinburgh Festival smash hit Performing Piaf is a loving musical tribute to the soul-searing chansons of French singer Edith Piaf. The show arrives in the Lyric on Thursday, with an 8pm show, another at the same time on Friday and two shows on Saturday; a 3pm matinee and an 8pm performance.

For those who may not know, Piaf was an iconic singer in wartime France, famous as much for her nomadic background, wild lifestyle and tragic death, as she was for her gut-wrenchingly emotional songs and superb voice.

Christine, a singer-songwriter and ex-teacher from Glasgow, became fascinated by Edith Piaf whilst quite young, when she discovered the song Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien. She has been singing Piaf’s songs for most of her life and Performing Piaf in its current format was brought to audiences in 2006.
