The Espace Léo Ferré will host for the second time the retro-modern duo Brigitte, formed by singers Sylvie Hoarau and Aurélie Saada.
With a double platinum record and a musical success for their album “Et vous, tu m’aimes?” (And you, do you love me?) released in 2011, Brigitte is a blazing success, largely confirmed by their second album, “A bouche que veux-tu» (A mouth that you want), which has propelled the talented duo to the rank of major artists on the French scene.
On each of their tours, in France and around the world, Brigitte has been captivating sold-out audiences.
In their third album “Nues” (Naked),” haunted by Véronique Sanson and Michel Berger, Aurélie told Le Figaro: "It has something not sexy, this album is pain rather than glamour and languor."
Monaco will be able to hear for themselves on March 30, at 8:30 pm at Espace Léo Ferré. General admission: €30, seats: €36. Information: +377 93 10 12 10.
