Event Description

UNDER PARIS SKIES –Piaf & Dietrich
Music Inspired by the City of Love

Music lovers will have the chance to see the incomparable Edie Daponte again as she performs her sell out show Under Paris Skies.
Edie returns to the Charlie White Theatre with another show and another language to add to her repertoire! Prepare to be transported into the world of the European music hall: with songs, live band, stories and entertainment. This time Edie will explore Edith Piaf and her contemporaries including the glamourous and unique Marlene Dietrich. Singing in English, French and German, she’ll bring you characterful versions of familiar and lesser-known numbers - all brought together with emotion, drama, sparkling costumes and Edie’s trademark humour.

Joining Edie are long-time collaborator Joey Smith on bass, and Vancouver Island favourites, Jeff Poynter on piano, Aaron Watson on accordion and guitar and Jonathan Eng on percussion. Share the intimate theatre atmosphere and enjoy Edie’s soulful and captivating renditions of the music inspired by the city of love.

"Wonderfully playful...DaPonte's Piaf is stunningly accurate, vibrato and all backed by a veritable who’s who of Victoria jazz musicians."
Don Descoteau, Monday Magazine

"Edie steals the show channeling Piaf in this intimate theatre experience!"
Deborah Rogers, Seaside Magazine

"A true talent"
Robin Burns, CBC All Points West
