Songs for the Fallen

Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall


Courtesan, party girl, liar and legend. Good girls don’t make history.

Set in Paris 1847, Songs for the Fallen is the wildly hilarious award-winning musical charting the extraordinary life of Marie Duplessis. Labeled by historians as the Diana of her time, she inspired La Traviata and Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge.

Marie, at 15 years old, defied her fate in the provinces of France and moved to Paris to become the toast of the city of love until her tragic death at the ripe old age of 23.

Part-Vaudeville, part-cabaret, part-MTV, Songs for the Fallen is an invitation to the decadent final party of this notorious and captivating woman.
