  • Show Description
  • Piaf Remembered is an intimate musical cabaret featuring many of Edith Piaf’s timeless classics, sung in French by renowned jazz and cabaret singer Oriana Curls.

    The show evokes Piaf as a performer through the memories of a man who as a boy witnessed what was to be her last performance at the Olympia Paris Music Hall in 1962 – a place where she had many triumphs. We see and hear Piaf perform through his eyes and ears.

    Featuring the stunning vocals of the renowned French born jazz and cabaret singer Oriana Curls, with multi-instrumentalist Katy Jungmann on saxophone, accordion and clarinet, Chris Jerome on piano, and Gary Merry who both wrote the script and directed the production, acting as the narrator.

    As one reviewer put it: “Oriana is an incredible performer in her own right, and these performance skills are finely tuned in her portrayal of Edith Piaf. What separates Oriana from the many, many singers of Edith Piaf songs out there is that she is one of the few who instinctively understands that these songs are not just words to be sung, but stories of life full of emotion, heartache and joy. These songs are some of the greatest ever written and it is almost like each has its own life and soul and the singer the storyteller, and the words and music of the songs themselves take over and tell their own story. It takes a special performer to do that, and Oriana Curls is such a performer.”
