“La Vie En Rouge” Caberet Performance

Posted by OCVA / January 31, 2015

Transport yourself to a French Cabaret, with Siri Vik and “La Vie En Rouge”.

Like a smear of deep red lipstick against a clean white wall, Edith Piaf’s voice is perhaps the single most vivid impression the world holds of France and its music – especially through her exquisitely sad classic, “La Vie en Rose.” Piaf’s voice reverberates through the last century into the 21st, echoing the loves, losses, the quiet desperations, the boundless passions, the stories of a nation.

Edith Piaf would have turned 100 this year – and as a tribute to the work of Piaf and the chanson tradition, chanteuse Siri Vik has created the cabaret concert, “La Vie En Rouge.” This performance, featuring Vik accompanied by a quintet playing piano, accordion, melodica, guitar, bass and percussion, will come to the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Saturday, Jan. 31. Tickets for this Weekender Concert Series presentation are $18 in advance and $20 at the door, on sale now at lincolncity-culturalcenter.org. Showtime is 7 pm.

Tickets for “La Vie En Rouge” are $18 in advance and $20 at the door, on sale at the LCCC box office, 541-994-9994 or lincolncity-culturalcenter.org. The box office accepts VISA, Mastercard and American Express, as well as checks and cash.

Doors will open at 6:30 pm. A selection of Northwest beers and wines, My Petite Sweet cookies and bars, and Mountain Man savory snacks will be sold before the show, and during intermission. For details and tickets, call 541-994-9994.
