Bienvenue to Chansons, the musical intercultural show. Soul-touching stories about life and passion, from ‘Ne me quitte pas’ (Brel) to ‘Milord’ (Piaf). Live life the French way for one night, without travelling or jetlag. It doesn’t matter if you speak French or not – all is explained in English. This piece inspires our own lives by looking at other cultures. Sung and performed in brilliant showmanship by Stefanie Rummel and her pianists. It was seen in theatres and cabarets in France, Germany, Iceland, Finland, UK and US. ‘Great chansons… passionate feelings’ (Rheingauer Echo).
"Stefanie Rummel's choice of songs will evoke memories, collective and personal, even if they are not sung in our home language. Stefanie’s ability to connect to her audience through songs is both charming and seductive. Chansons delivers a simple but moving message: it is through songs that we are finally able to understand each other." – BroadwayWorld (Helen Tope)
"Rummel’s voice is outstanding: it moves from delicate, lingering notes (in a superb cover of Autumn Leaves) to real moments of joie de vivre in Rummel’s take on the Piaf classic, L’Accordeoniste."
The Reviews Hub - Helen Tope 4 Star Review ****
"A fascinating show, comfortably paced and with the right amount of history, songs and personal anecdotes, it held my attention despite me being far from fully conversant in French." Review LondonTheatre1 by Chris Omaweng 4 Star Review ****
"The international songstress offers stunning interpretations of Jacques Brel classics including 'Ne me quitte pas' and mesmerizing takes on Edith Piaf's 'Padam, Padam' and 'Milord.' https://www.broadwayworld.com/adelaide/article/Stefanie-Rummels-CHANSONS-PIAF-BREL-ME-to-be-Presented-at-The-Adelaide-Fringe-Winter-2023-20221206
