Lautrec (2000)

Compositeur: Charles Aznavour

Parolier: Charles Aznavour

Librettiste: Shaun McKenna

A bio- musical of the life, loves and times of Toulouse-Lautrec. According to Nicholas de Jongh reviewing the musical in the London Evening Standard he said of the show: "Lautrec ambles its way through the sex-life of the late 19th century painter. It treats truth as a very distant cousin indeed. Of the sexually transmitted disease that killed him there is no mention."

Quelques remarques

Lautrec is Charles Aznavour's first musical. His dramatic 'chanson' style is unioue and instantly recognisable. Bom of Armenian parents in 1924, he has written over 1000 songs and sold more tnan 100 million records in a career spanning six decades. He has appeared in more than 50 films including Don't Shoot the Pianist and A Taxi To Tobruk. He has worked with or nad his songs recorded by many musical 'greats' over the years including Edith Piaf, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby and Liza Minnelli. He has performed in over 80 countries and is still doing so undertaking a tour of Belgium this autumn followed by a return to the Palais de Congres in Paris for a two month concert season. His Number One hit song 'She', sung by Elvis Costello, was recently featured in the film Notting Hill.

Commentaires :
Praised for its lavish scenery and costumes, the rest of the show was heavily criticised with phrases like “a poorly structured and under-written book”, “dreary music and trite lyrics”. It ran for just ten weeks.
