This tour angles the spotlight on some of the dramatic heroines of the Parisian stage, in both theatre and music.

Historically the career of actor was viewed with such disdain in France that they were denied most of their civil rights and women who took to the stage were considered as little more than glorified sex workers. However, as the public’s taste for entertainment grew and Paris gained its reputation as the capital of art and culture during the Belle Epoque, “les artistes” began to take centre stage.

The tour begins by the famous Comédie Française theatre and weaves through the historic theatre district of Paris, exploring beloved superstars like Edith Piaf and Sarah Bernhardt as well as some lesser known performers such as Mademoiselle Clairon and Loie Fuller.
