Romeo & Juliet in Chicago

Roberto Alagna, one of the greatest tenors of our time, brings the legendary Al Capone back to life on the Folies Bergère stage.

Chicago, 1930: defying all the laws, Al Capone and Eliot Ness engage in a merciless fight until the unexpected arises...forcing them to choose between Love and Confrontation.

Freely inspired by the life of Al Capone, this musical plunges us into the heart of rivalries and passions in Prohibition America.

From the frenzied rhythms of Charleston to the energy of pop rock and the power of opera, Al Capone is a musical show that shakes up genres: choreography and live musicians surround Roberto Alagna, Anggun and Bruno Pelletier.

An original creation by Jean-Félix Lalanne.

Directed by Jean-Louis Grinda.

Duration: 2h30 with intermission

Folies Bergère

The Folies Bergère (French pronunciation: ​[fɔ.li bɛʁ.ʒɛʁ]) is a cabaret music hall, located in Paris, France. Located at 32 Rue Richer in the 9th Arrondissement, the Folies Bergère was built as an opera house by the architect Plumeret. It opened on 2 May 1869 as the Folies Trévise, with light entertainment including operettas, comic opera, popular songs, and gymnastics. It became the Folies Bergère on 13 September 1872, named after nearby Rue Bergère. The house was at the height of its fame and popularity from the 1890s' Belle Époque through the 1920s.

Revues featured extravagant costumes, sets and effects, and often nude women. In 1926, Josephine Baker, an African-American expatriate singer, dancer and entertainer, caused a sensation at the Folies Bergère by dancing in a costume consisting of a skirt made of a string of artificial bananas and little else.

The institution is still in business, and is still a strong symbol of French and Parisian life.
