MOZART L'OPÉRA ROCK

​Palais des Sports 2014 and on tour (in alternance with Karim Medjebeur

This intense experience started at the Palais des Sports in Paris and continued in stadiums across France. Conducting the Chorus and Symphony Orchestra of Kiev, the rock and roll musicians of the "band" and the troupe of talented singers who made such a success of this musical gave me the opportunity to explore a new style in my musical journey.

SOUINGUE & SOUINGUE! SOUINGUE!

Théâtre de Suresnes/tournée 1998 et 2008

In the beginning was "Souingue"... an adventure started in 1998 by seven jazz fans: a  burlesque show if ever there was one, applauded more than 250 times in the four corners of France... 

Reprising the witty words of great authors and the iconic performances of personalities of the French stage, we decided to "re-souingue" in 2008, in a new review of post-war repertoire. 

Thirty unexpected and humorous songs, from Boby Lapointe to Nougaro, which I had the pleasure of arranging for my long-time accomplices!


Directed by Laurent Pelly
Avec Fabienne Guyon, Florence Pelly, Gilles Vajou et Jacques Verzier

UN CHAPEAU DE PAILLE D'ITALIE
