They have made all generations dance and sing… the emblematic characters of the rock opera star mania is back, this time on the boards of the Seine Musicale de Paris (ticket office here). Until January 29, 2023, the public will be able to applaud the interpretations of emblematic titles such as SOS a landowner in needor the unbelievable i need love originally sung by the late France Gall. But a crowd of lucky little ones had the opportunity to discover the show, before everyone else, on November 8, 2022 during the unusual premiere of this show, created in 1979 by Michel Berger and Luc Plamondon.
The wait was diabolically interminable since the resumption of star mania was postponed for two seasons due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was well worth the wait. Sounds and lights are now gathered to impress the audience, who rose unanimously at the end of the first official performance of the show, on November 8, 2022. On stage, in addition to Johnny Rockfort’s new faces – Côme – , Cristal – Lilya Adad – or Zéro Janvier – David Latulippe -, the whole team gathered just before the curtain fell. Around Luc Plamondon: Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, the choreographer, Kevin Vivès, assistant choreographer and Thomas Jolly, the director.
Brigitte Macron informs Seine Musicale
To attend the premiere of star mania, the audience walked on a blue carpet installed at the entrance to the Seine Musicale. Inside, everyone enjoyed a rock opera themed photo exhibit. Brigitte Macron had of course come to attend this great event. It was Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of Louis Vuitton and costume designer for the musical, who had dressed the first lady in a sublime jacket with golden sequins. Also present that evening were Eric Dupond-Moretti, Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière, the pianist Hélène Arnault, but also two artists, each in turn embodying the Waitress automaton, alias Marie-Jeanne, in star mania. This is Fabienne Thibeault who performed the first one A boy like no other in 1979. Isabelle Boulay took over the role in the 1990s and, thanks to it, touched the hearts of the French.
If you wish to attend a performance of star maniago to the Seine Musicale until January 29, 2023. A tour will then be organized throughout France.
