A show celebrating the music and talent of the late Charles Aznavour, considered one of the greatest French singers of all time, will come to the Dubai Opera on February 13 and 14.
The show, interpreted by Jules Grison and his five musicians, travels back to Bohemian-era France and the roots of Charles Aznavour, with iconic songs such as “La Bohème”, “Désormais”, “and Emmenez-moi”, “For me Formidable”.
Called as France’s Frank Sinatra, Aznavour’s career spanned 70 years during which he recorded more than 1,200 songs and sung them in a variety of different languages. He died in October 2018 at the age of 94. In total, he counts more 180 million records sold around the world and is considered as one of the most famous musical legends of our time — alongside the likes of Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel.
Following the success of Piaf! Le Spectacle earlier this year, Dubai Opera and Broadway Entertainment Group are bringing Formidable! Aznavour to Dubai.
The celebration immortalises the toe-tapping tenor’s career in a multimedia production of images, video and original staging. Aznavour even gave the production his personal blessing before his passing.
