Join the charismatic Robin Goh for 4 magical evenings as he showcases the music of the legendary master of French Chanson, Charles Aznavour, for the first time ever in Singapore!
From November 11 – 14, the newly renovated theatre of Alliance Française will be the setting for an intimate, acoustic concert showcasing Goh’s authentic and moving renditions of his favourite ballads and up-tempo songs by France’s most famous singer.
Brought to you by Sing’theatre, who captivated audiences with the wonderful concert “La Vie en Rose” this past spring, “Take me along” is sure to be an unforgettable introduction to the music of Aznavour for Singaporeans.
“As a French national, I think Aznavour is one of our most beautiful living treasures and I can’t wait to share his phenomenal music with a Singaporean audience,” says Sing’theatre founder Nathalie Ribette.
Aznavour’s boldly original and honest love songs paired with his unique tenor voice have captivated audiences around the world for over 70 years. His songs deal with the pains and pleasures of love, from joyous pieces like “Take me Along” to the darker “How Sad Venice Is” and the romantic “She.” He’s been covered in English by international legends such as Elvis Presley, Elvis Costello, Ray Charles and one of Goh’s favourites, Liza Minnelli. A segment of the concert will feature songs that were recorded by Minnelli including “What Makes a Man a Man” which Goh was fortunate enough to see Minnelli perform live in New York.
