28 February 2017

7.30pm

£7.95 / £6.95 concs, BFS free

A wealthy Parisian diva sings to an expectant audience, invited to her beautiful home. She is received with a rapturous response – despite having an alarmingly awful voice! Yet Marguerite became famous and was obliviously encouraged to become more ambitious, charming even the sceptics among her devoted following.

Based on the original character of Florence Foster Jenkins but a quite different story set in Paris rather than New York, this portrayal is more touchingly melancholy as we get to know the woman and her blind passion for singing, and those around her who love her too much to reveal the truth.

Earplugs to the fore then, for a delightful night with Marguerite!
