Lambert Wilson is an artist and an actor who impressed by being himself. He is not an ordinary character and he likes being free and making his own choices. He is known for trying every all forms of shows, from cinema to more commercial productions, from music hall to classical theater, to operetta and lyrical singing! Now, it was time for a retrospective into a character he admires: Yves Montand!

The actor from the Odysee, the last film that is ruling in theaters right now, is open about his passion about singing and Montand notes. 

 "He uses words to tell stories. We are very close tothe sensuality of articulation" he says.  

The story started when Lambert Wilson finally accepted a proposal around Montand from the Sony Classical label. The album was born thanks to Lambert's complicity with the pianist and arranger Bruno Fontaine, with whom he had worked extensively on the Alain Resnais film "Same Old Song (On connaît la chanson)". 

Lambert Wilson en concert à Monaco le 24 novembre 2016

Now, Opera Garnier hosts Lambert Wilson for a delicate and strong, at the same time, session of good vibes. 

On the evening's programme: La bicyclette, Les grands boulevards and several lesser known pieces such as Les bijoux. Wilson, accompanied by 6 musicians will take us back to an era where jazz group dynamics was at their peak, which evidently explains this programme choice as a Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival premiere. One of the finest Montand tributes 25 years after his death, now at Monte Carlo Jazz Festival.  

The event is on November 24th at 20:30 at Opera Garnier Monte Carlo.
