As part of the exhibition "Rodin et son mouleur Paul Cruel" displayed at the French Playing Card Museum, the Compagnie Paris Lyrique with soprano Françoise Krief, baritone Frédéric Bang-Rouhet and pianist Isabelle Poulain invites you to a lyric stroll in Paris of the Belle Epoque, to talk about, twenty years before WWI, of the frivolity, the cheerfulness, the euphoria, the scientific progress as well as the development of an artistic, litterary and music life particularly rich.
