Let yourself be taken on a trip to the city of light and romance when the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre brings the sounds of Paris to audiences.

‘Under Paris Skies’ is part of the Joan’s popular Morning Melodies concert series and will use music to take listeners on an exotic journey to the beautiful French capital.

French singers Milko Foucault-Larche and Rikelle Turner will show off their impressive vocal talents when they perform their own unique interpretations of timeless French classics.

Let yourself get caught up in the magical beauty of the unforgettable love songs of Charles Aznavour, Maurice Chevalier, Edith Piaff and other beloved French musicians.

The rich vocals of Turner and Foucault-Larche will complement each other in several duets as the performers go on a musical journey – from the underground of the Paris Opera House to the barricades of Les Miserables and the winding backstreets of Paris.

As well as taking on beloved classics, each singer will introduce their own material for audiences to enjoy.
They will be accompanied by the John Watson Trio and there will also be special guest artists, accordionist Phillip Witwer and stilt performer MDM Grand.

A veteran on the club circuit, Milko Foucault-Larche was born in Mauritius and began his performance career in a French theatre company.

He had a diverse entertainment career in his home country, appearing at cabaret venues, hotels and on television and even getting involved behind the scenes as a producer for stage shows, television and radio.

In Australia, Foucault-Larche has studied singing and dramatic art and performed at clubs which earned him two nominations at the MO Awards.

He has previously starred in a one man show about the music of Charles Aznavour and has also performed in the touring show ‘Moulin Bergere’.

These versatile singers are bound to impress with their beautiful renditions of French songs.

‘Under Paris Skies’ will show at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday, April 24.

Tickets are $20 and include a delicious Devonshire morning tea.
