Au cabaret des poilus
(The soldier’s cabaret)
Theatrical and musical show
Saint-Saëns, Paladilhe, Février, Péguy, Daudet…
During World War I, soldier-artists are checked in the military hospital of Châlon-sur-Marne. Christmas is approaching and they need to put on a show to entertain the injured and boost the soldiers’ moral! The colonel Osnobichine, chief of the Russian ambulance, is in charge of the show that will be given in front of the highest-ranking officers and dignitaries from the town…
Captain O’Kelkuitt and Marshal Bouse will lead all the performers. Constantly switching between emotion, humor and patriotism, they will put on an incredible show.
