NEW-YORK PREMIERE 
« HYMNE A PIAF »
A BILINGUAL TRIBUTE TO EDITH PIAF








Fresh from a phenomenally successful two-year run in her home town of Paris, French chanteuse Caroline Nin is ready to thrill New York audiences with her globally-acclaimed, bilingual tribute to France’s most beloved musical icon, Edith Piaf.
 
For more than a decade the Parisian cabaret star has enthralled and uplifted audiences around the world at Sydney’s prestigious Opera House to London’s Royal Festival Hall, the Edinburgh Festival and theatres throughout Europe with her mesmerizing interpretation – rather than impersonation – of Piaf’s œuvre.
 
Miss Nin’s seductively smoky, jazz-inflected voice transports audiences to the streets of old Paris as she weaves stories in English effortlessly between spirited singing of the world-renowned anthems such as La Vie en Rose, Padam, Je Ne Regrette Rien and many more that made Piaf a darling of the world’s stage.
 
Described as a « classic femme fatale » with an electric stage presence, Miss Nin’s « HYMNE A PIAF » was awarded a prestigious 2012 Helpmann Award nomination for Best Cabaret Performer. She was also honoured with the Best Female Jazz Vocalist Award in France.
 
After conquering Paris, she is thrilled to finally present « Hymne a Piaf » 
at the prestigious Metropolitan Room in New York for the first time, paying tribute to France’s Little Sparrow during this, the 100th anniversary year of her birth.
 
« I’m so honoured to be presenting HYMNE A PIAF in New York City.   Growing up with Piaf, nothing could make me prouder than to perform and share the music and life of the most famous of all French chanteuse in a city where she, herself, performed, lived and loved for many years. » says Miss Nin.
 
............................................................................

Caroline Nin is a classic femme fatale, one who charms, intrigues and fills your imagination with a plethora of images, stories and memories through her mesmerizing personality.
 
Born in France, the Parisian-based Nin’s debut in the late 80s at The Hollywood Savoy in Paris’ glamorous Opera district, quickly garners her a loyal following.
 
She moves to London in the early 90s to, as she admits, improve her English and become and “International Jazz Singer”.
  
A strong French backgroung nevertheless always transpires in Caroline Nin’s oeuvre and it is at the Pleasance Theatre for the 1998 Edinburgh Festival, that she continues to captivate and entice her audiences, subsequently winning a Herald Angel award for her cabaret spectacular “The Last Show” featuring scores from Piaf, Dietrich, Minelli and Brel.
 
In 2001, Nin moves back to Paris to take up a residency at the City of Light’s most famous cabaret venue Le Lido on The Champs Elysées.
 
In 2002, Caroline is invited to perform her “HYMNE A PIAF” show for the first time in Australia at the world renowned Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Both Nin and her show are met with great success.
 
Delving deep into Piaf’s unfortunate, joyous but ultimately memorable life, Nin’s smoky, jazzy and sensitive interpretation – rather than impersonation – of The Little Sparrow’s works, includes showstoppers such as Milord, Non, je ne regrette rien and Padam.
 
Since its inception the show has been presented as far as the Sydney Opera House and the Royal Festival Hall  in London.
 
A two-month tour of the UK in early 2011 culminates in an invitation by Ronnie Scotts to perform her signature and by now, much acclaimed show.
 
In June 2011, Caroline returns to the Melbourne Recital Centre, where the show receives multiple standing ovations from the 1200-strong audience at the Elizabeth Murdoch Hall, and is nominated for HELPMANN AWARDS 2012 – Best Cabaret Artist.
Requests to take her shows to New York and Canada, are deferred with Nin taking up a one-year exclusive residency at the Lido de Paris, where she has performed 6 nights a week.
 
Caroline presents for the first time in Paris, her show "Hymne A Piaf" in early 2013. After a 2 years sold-out season in her home town, the show can now Premiere in New York City at the prestigious Metropolitan Room in late October this year.
