Songs For the Fallen is wonderfully rip-roaring, outrageous and fun...
Jonathan Hindmarsh (The Brag)
On January 15th 1847, Marie Duplessis – courtesan, party girl, liar and legend – got out of bed, put on a dress, ordered a bottle of champagne, and sat alone in her Paris apartment to celebrate her birthday. She died 18 days later, aged 23… But Mademoiselle is not done yet.
After a hugely successful season, that had critics and audiences raving, Songs for the Fallen part vaudeville, part punk opera, part MTV-does-Baroque show, is the wild and unforgettable final birthday party Marie never had. With a lush live baroque-pop score (Basil Hogios, AFI Nominee), Marie Duplessis (Sheridan Harbridge, Best Cabaret Melb Fringe) will drag you along the hilarious, loud adventure that made this woman a legend.
We’re gonna party like its 1847. And it’s going to be HUGE… AGAIN!
Songs for the Fallen is part of the 2013 Reginald Season.
