Product details

These songs are inspired by a collection of posters "From Cheret to Toulouse-Lautrec" which was a travelling exhibition of the National Gallery of Australia. The first song 'Paris, jadis' is in the style of a nostalgic love poem. The second, 'Merline', is a cakewalk (even though Merline says "you should see me dance the can-can"). The third 'Cherette' imagines a tourist coming to Paris, meeting an artist (Cheret, an actual poster artist) modelling for him and ending up on a cabaret poster. The refrain of this number is actually a gallop (can-can) and quotes Offenbach in the postlude.
