Christine Bovill returns to Henley in Arden after a standing ovation for her rendering of Piaf! A Parisian scented twilight world of song.

About this event

The amazing Christine Bovill returns to Henley in Arden - where else would you see such a performer is such an intimate 'up close' venue!

​ In her new show, Christine travels into the 60s and the Americanisation of French music: le yé-yé. A time of great cultural change in France, would the high art of chanson survive...? This new show offers a sexy and delicious celebration of the Golden Age of French song and how it evolved during the Swinging Sixties. Singing in both French and English she honours many stars including Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg and Francoise

“ Something that will stay with you for the rest of your life….I wasn’t prepared for the effect her voice would have on me.” - Sunday Times

“That voice, which is once heard, never forgotten” - Metro

“Bovill’s stage presence and voice are exquisite …This is indeed five star entertainment.” - David Petherick EdinburghFestival.org

"Bovill conveys the pathetic nature of the song with few gestures, her voice carrying all before her, its honeyed subtleties wringing pathos from every line. Forget the ululating gymnastics of The X Factor or The Voice, this is how you sell a song" - Culture Northern Ireland
