Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain is back ! This time as the Châtelet is under works, the event will take place under the beautiful nave of the Grand Palais !

By itself, the sequence where Gene Kelly dances in the rain embodies the golden age ofthe Hollywood musical. The song, and its immediate recognisable melody, hasbeen revived and quoted numerable times. From Clockwork Orange to TheSimpsons, from Glee to North by Northwest, Nacio Herbert Brown and Arthur Freed‘s composition has been all around the world since its creation in1929.

In 1952 Freed, turned one of the big Hollywood producers, put songs end to end to write the film(somehow as An American in Paris a year earlier). This light satire of the cinema world having to deal with the talking picture is a "resolutely optimistic story from the beginning to the end where professionalism, tenacity,friendship and love overcome all difficulties*".

The artistic team isled by the director Robert Carsen, who staged Bernstein’s Candide at the Châtelet (2006, later performed in Japan) and My Fair Lady by Lerner and Loewe (2010, 2013, also performed at the Mariinsky in Saint Petersburg).
