Paris is the place to find glamour and entertainment! The city has a thriving nightlife scene with a varied range of lively night spots, including its iconic cabarets. They are an integral aspect of the city’s glittering image. People all over the world dream about visiting a Paris cabaret.
The Lido de Paris, the iconic cabaret on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, closed its doors for several months to get a makeover and put together a dazzling new revue, signed by Franco Dragone, the internationally-renowned artistic director, and creative director at the Cirque du Soleil. This ultra-modern new show ‘Paris Merveilles’ follows on from previous Lido revues – the Bluebells, the costumes and amazing stage sets, the music and sequins are all still there –, but it reinvents the codes of the genre by placing an emphasis on extravagance and cutting-edge technology. With its original scenography and acts as varied as they are unexpected, this latest of Parisian revues offers the public a wonderful spectacle.
