Fairground in the windows !

Roll up, roll up!

For this new, festive season, young and old will be
literally whisked away by the world of an early 20th Century Paris fairground,
reconstructed in the windows of Galeries Lafayette Haussmann.

The barrel organ draws you in with its catchy rhythm, whilst you follow the feverish race between Pierre, the hero pigeon and his sweetheart, Coco the gentle dove.

In this exaggerated Paris, where a certain 20s surrealism collides with a baroque art deco spirit, a ferris wheel, claw machine, roller coasters…your head will be spinning, but fortunately  at the end of the journey they find each other in the sky above Paris. Exactly above the Dome at Galeries Lafayette.

Life is good. Life is a party. And Christmas too!

GREASE THE MUSICAL AT THE MOGADOR THEATER !

Established in 1971 by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, launched on Valentine’s Day in 1972 and played 3,388 times on Broadway during its first operation, Grease was nominated for 7 Tony Awards. It was then produced in London in 1974. This musical was brought to the screen four years later, an eponymous film marked by the duo Olivia Newton-John / John Travolta, the record-breaking film, $ 400 million Recipes and often cited as the most popular musical film. This adaptation of the musical has truly propelled the career of John Travolta.

Since the success never ceased, the musical was taken over Broadway (from 1994 to 1998 for 1 505 additional performances), exploited in tours throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Africa The South and several European countries. (Richard Gere and Elaine Paige, among others, have appeared in the various distributions).

The story takes place in 1959 at the Rydell High School, in the suburbs of Chicago, on a background of rock music. Sandy Dumbrowski, a new student, joined the high school. To her surprise, she finds her love of summer, Danny Zuko, head of the gang of Burger Palace Boys. If she is happy to see him again, he worries more about his popularity and his image as a band chief than Sandy’s feelings. Aided by the Pink Ladies, Sandy will end up imposing itself in this game of love and chance.

 

From 17th to 27th September, the show will be previewed at preferential rates.

A Pink evening will be held on September 27th: come dressed in pink, gifts await you.

The gala premiere will take place on September 28th.

For the first time in France we can appreciate the reconstitution of monumental works as Judith I and Beethoven Frieze. Along the visit you will see his most important works of his life and also some rare documents on his artist life and family.

“A very particular attention is furthermore paid to the first years of the Secession and to the influence it exercides on the artist’s formation through the major Viennese intellectuals, such as Carl Schuch, Tina Blau, Théodor Hörmann, Josef Engelhart, Max Kurzweil, who, just like him, spent time in Paris at that period. the artistic personalities who influenced his art are summoned up thanks to a choice of paintings coming from the Belvedere, presented alongside works describing the history of the movement’s patrons. Thus, the exhibition shows important masterpieces from the Secession and from the Austrian vanguard, such as the first works by Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.

A final section of the exhibition is devoted to Viennese art forms, to the ancient and refined trade of craftsmanship, which engendered pieces of furniture, and to precious jewels, to splendid ceramics, as well as complex reconstructions of works and of rich historical documents, witnesses to the genesis and to the evolution of great artists and architects of that period, such as Adolf Loos, Josef Hoffmann and the Viennese Studio.”

At the Best Western Opéra d’Antin we dedicate the decor to Gustav Klimt, you will recognize reproductions of his main work everywhere in the hotel.
