Bozar Next Generation
The word ‘cabaret’ immediately conjures up an entire world. The first cabarets with musical performances emerged at the end of the 19th century in France and then around the world, the best-known examples being Les Folies Bergères and Le Chat Noir in Paris or Café Society in New York. Cabaret songs started appearing in classical music at the beginning of the 20th century with composers such as Benjamin Britten or Kurt Weill, and later with Arnold Schoenberg and William Bolcom. Rising Star Axelle Fanyo has put together a particularly beautiful programme around this, mixing jazz, gospel, and soul with the classical repertoire. This charismatic soprano’s warm voice transforms the Henry Le Boeuf Hall into a thriving cabaret.
Axelle Fanyo has been nominated as a Rising Star by the Philharmonie de Paris and the Auditorium de Lyon.
