Celebrating The 60th Anniversary of Edith Piaf’s Acclaimed Last Performance
Edith Piaf
With over half a million tickets sold in more than 30 countries and acclaimed reviews worldwide Piaf!, The Show – a musical celebration of the life and music of the legendary French chanteuse – returns to America and Carnegie Hall as part of an extended world tour.
Conceived and directed by the Nice-based theatrical maverick Gil Marsalla and starring Anne Carrere, a young French performer hailed as “Edith Piaf’s legitimate musical heiress,”  Piaf!, The Show premiered in 2015 as a tribute to “The Swallow of Montmartre” on the centennial on her birthday and was inspired by the award-winning movie La Vie En Rose.  In two 45-minute acts, the show narrates the rags-to-riches story of the Parisian singer’s career through her unforgettable songs, complemented by a visual tapestry of previously unreleased photographs and images of famous Parisian locations of the Edith Piaf era
Gil Marsalla, producer and director of  Piaf!, The Show, first met future star Anne Carrere in 2014, when she auditioned for another of his productions, Paris ! The Show Captivated by her skills and natural charisma, Marsalla offered her the role of Edith Piaf in his new production. “I have worked in show business – on and off stage – for 25 years and mounted shows around the world. But to this day, Anne Carrere is my greatest artistic discovery yet. Don’t you dare touch or polish her, she is a diamond that you want to keep raw – such is the nature of her pure and natural talent,” says Marsalla of his leading lady. Equally impressed with Carrere were Piaf’s longtime collaborators, composer Charles Dumont and singer Germaine Ricord, who described Anne’s skills as “that of Edith Piaf at the top of her career.”
Anne Carrere made her debut in large-scale musical theatre as the star of  Piaf!, The Show. A native of Puget, a small town in the South of France, she began preparing for a stage career in her early teens, studying voice, acting, and a variety of vocal and dance styles at the renowned art school Salon-de-Provence. She later pursued classical musical training, playing flute and piano. Before seriously pursuing her passion for the traditional French chanson, Anne participated in numerous French talent competitions and TV shows, showcasing her singing and dancing skills in diverse styles including classical, jazz and breakdance.
Tickets for the 60th anniversary of Edith Piaf’s last performance for Carnegie Hall on January 6, 2017, at  8pm are $20 – $125; and can be purchased through Carnegie Hall’s website
