Formidable! Aznavour

After the worldwide success of Piaf, The show!, producer and director Gil Marsalla from Directo Productions returns to Montreal at Théâtre Maisonneuve with Formidable ! Aznavour – The story of a legend. This show immerses us in the streets of Paris at the time of “La Bohème” and introduces us to Charles Aznavour’s incredible career, through his unforgettable songs, now part of the universal musical heritage. Surrounded by five French musicians, Jules Grison embodies, lives and vibrates to the rhythm of the music, transported by the words, a show in the purest tradition of the great French song. The most beautiful tribute ever made to Charles Aznavour’s career – with his approval!

Aznavour“After having produced more than 400 shows in 50 countries with the musical Piaf! The Show, there was always a nagging question that surfaced again and again when we were speaking to audiences. “Why don’t you create a musical based on the life of Charles Aznavour?” So, bearing in mind the fact the Charles Aznavour is as famous around the world as, for example, Edith Piaf, the idea started to form in my mind around the concept of a show in his honour.However, this would be impossible without his blessing. For this reason, Jules Grison and myself left for New York on the 15th of October 2016, heading for Charles Aznavour’s Madison Square Gardens show, to meet him during his final tour and discuss the possibility of realising this project. Graciously acknowledging our reputation internationally, and fired by his passion to reach younger generations of music fans, he gave us his permission to go ahead with the project. From that day on, we have worked tirelessly to produce a show worthy of the man himself and the icon he represents to this day”.  – Gil Marsalla
