DANIÈLE PASCAL IN CABARET (article first published : 2001-06-7)

Danièle Pascal’s romance with South African continues as the well-known French actress/singer returns to Durban to perform at the Royal Hotel’s Backstage from June 13 to 30. The songs in this show date back to the 60’s when a “broken heart was a broken heart and we had the song and the cocktail to weather the storm”.

The programme features a collection of songs with a “heartcatching blend of tenderness, torchiness and irrepressible vitality by the incomparable Pascale”. There are songs by Rod McKuen, Dalida, Edith Piaf, Eartha Kitt, Marianne Faithfull, Leonard Cohen and Michel Legrand as well as Danièle’s own rendition of the Koos Kombois classic Lisa se Klavier in Afrikaans.

The main focus is “love – the unpredictable attaction of its spell, the nervous thrill of its pursuit and the crushing effects of its loss has forever been the main source of inspiration in art, literature and music”.

The mutli-talented pianist Liza Joubert accompanies Danièle on piano. Tickets include a three-course meal in true Royal style. Book through Royal Reservations on (031) 333-6222.
