Natalie Dessay - Michel Legrand : Entre Elle & Lui

11 june 2014 - 9pm
Approximate duration: 

Entre elle & lui: all the magic of the songs created by Michel Legrand for the cinema, interpreted by Natalie Dessay. The most popular of all sopranos revisits the tunes from Les Demoiselles de Rochefort or Peau d’âne in the gardens of the Orangerie of the Château de Versailles (outdoor performance).


After more than 60 years spent composing, Michel Legrand is more creative than ever. Constantly on the lookout for new encounters and new collaborations, he is a tireless inventor, refusing to establish a hierarchy between musical styles. In 2011 and 2012 he formed a singer/pianist duet with Natalie Dessay for a few dates on tour.

Their work together was such a revelation for both artists that Michel Legrand decided to orchestrate his major musical hits as quartets with Natalie Dessay singing. We are offering the public a concert with the greatest tunes revisited by these international artists, in the exceptional setting of the Château de Versailles Orangerie.

Fans will be thrilled to have Michel Legrand back at the piano with his trio in the first part and to be carried away by Natalie Dessay’s fabulous voice, singing the maestro’s wonderful songs, together with the quartet. From Jacque Demy to Alan and Marilyn Bergman, through to Claude Nougaro and Eddy Marnay, this exercise in style with all its grace and beauty of sound guarantees an intense musical moment.



In case of cancellation decided by the organizer, due to bad weather, the show will be postponed to the next day, Thursday 12 June, at the same time and in the same conditions.
