Amélie The Musical

Multi award-winning 2001 French film Amélie is currently touring the UK in a new musical version prior to a run in the West End. Amélie Poulain (born 1974) develops an active imagine through the loneliness of being home schooled. The death of Diana, Princess of Wales, causes a chain of events that gives Amélie a purpose in life – to bring happiness to others.

The talented cast of actor musicians playing a multitude of characters and instruments; Daniel Messé’s haunting music; and Madeleine Girling’s atmospheric design all successfully convey Paris of the time. The first half takes time to find its feet, being rather maudlin textually and musically, but picks up just before the interval, before developing into a gentle love story in act two as Amélie seeks to find the man who seeks to resolve the mystery of the ripped photos. Audrey Brisson delights with her mischievous innocence as Amélie, and her resoluteness in finding Nino (Danny Mac), both actors leading the strong company through this quirky musical journey.

A funereal gnome, giant figs, Elton John, a nun and an array of dildos make this a rather surreal experience, but one worth heading to the Opera House for to delight in an evening of Parisian pleasures.
