Loughcrew Music and Opera Festival 2016

The Loughcrew Music and Opera Festival is back again for 2016! This year we have two unique performances.

Loughcrew Opera

‘Pigalle ! Chansons de Paris’

Thursday 23rd June at 8 pm

Derby Browne: Chanteuse ~ David Wray: Clavier

Derek McKenna: Accordion ~ George Fleeton: Realisation

Derby Browne’s show ‘Pigalle!’ is packed with music from the cabarets and cafes of Paris; with romantic interludes from Parisian tea-shops, carnivals and market-places. Portraying the diminutive chanteuse’s life of poverty from the depths of Paris’ slums to worldwide fame and notoriety. Romance, poverty, success, murder and music – Pigalle has all of the ingredients to transport an audience back to the murky yet glamorous era of 1930’s/40’s Paris.

Tickets: €35

A Parisan Platter of  Cheese, Salad and Dessert will be available for €20 per person, pre booking essential.
