Ask for the program ...




Among all the songs that Yves Montand performed on stage, 

so difficult to choose to stick with the 22 that would make up this performance.  

 



I prefered the "actor’s songs" funny for most of them,  

the ones that tell a story, 

the ones with real characters 

 (a blind boxing champion, a not very proper English Lord, a rather nice old prostitute...), 

songs that sound like little movies, 

 in which Montand himself added a lot of comedy.  

 

I built the program mixing these songs with others that have remained in our memories for their "unforgettable" melodies, their exuberant joie de vivre, or yet for their great tenderness ... because, as he said:

 

" Les gens, on leur fout de la terreur, de la violence, du rock…

mais dès que tu as deux violons et un bon texte, ça marche…

parce que la tendresse, tu as beau rouler des mécaniques, tu en as besoin ".

 

" We give people terror, violence, rock…

but as soon as there are two violins and a good text, it works…

because tenderness - no matter what – you need it ".
