Description: With Parisian society in late 19th and early 20th centuries regularly gripped by periods of Anglomania, a constant process of cultural exchange with London resulted in operetta hits, wartime classics and popular songs both bawdy and elegant. Capturing the spirit of a period ranging from the fashionable d’Oyly Carte to 1920s American Jazz, the Frivol’Ensemble takes you back in time to rediscover the delights of this golden age of musical theatricality. Texts and translations available online. Clémentine Decouture (soprano), Philippe Brocard (baritone), Frivol’Ensemble.
