Stacy Kent and the Olympia

April 8th, 2012

Stacy Kent gave a wonderful concert at the Olympia Theatre Friday night.  It was a memorable night, all the more since it was my first time at the Olympia, probably the most fabled concert hall in Paris.  Whether you’re a French singer or not, to appear on stage at the Olympia says that you’ve made it, you’ve arrived, you’re a success!  Built in 1893 it’s hosted French stars such Barbara, Brassens, Brel, Piaf and Johnny Hallyday as well as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, BB King and Lady Gaga.  Threatened several times over the century with being razed it was added to the list of historical sites in 1993.
