  • Due to popular demand, French chanteuse Caroline Nin returns to Crazy Coqs with her show : Songs and Stories of the Paris Lido

    Famed for its sophisticated nightlife, the iconic venue on the Champs Elysées has been home to cabaret’s elite including Marlene Dietrich, Edith Piaf, Shirley Maclaine, Liza Minnelli and Noel Coward to name just a few.

    For many years, headlining at the Lido in the glamourous revue “BONHEUR”, Caroline introduced worldwide audiences to the longings, struggles and heartaches of Lola Lola with Nin at once being its mistress and muse.

    Caroline and her trio (piano, doublebass, and drums) led by Musical Director Sean Hargreaves, will transport you to the heart of Paris with an exciting repertoire that celebrates the cosmopolitan and multicultural nature of the city.

    Featuring songs from Gainsbourg, Ebb & Kander, Piazzolla, Grace Jones, Brel, Michel Legrand and Kurt Weill, let Nin’s trademark smoky-jazz-inflected voice seduce you over and over.

    “Those fabulous years spent at the Lido, performing night after night have been a very important part of my life as a chanteuse and a performer. I had to write this show to express the passion that the world’s most famous Cabaret venue has brought to me, it is an honour and pleasure to perform and tell stories of the underworld of the Paris Lido at London’s thriving Crazy Coqs ” – Caroline Nin

    ‘Nin is classic femme fatale… a taste of intimacy with one of music’s true angels’ – ★★★★ The Guardian

    ‘What a voice ….. Powerful and razor-sharp’ – ★★★★ The Age
