The Lido in a nutshell

Created in 1946 and ideally located on the Champts-Elysées, this cabaret and its revues are must sees of the City of Light and of Paris by night. The Lido de Paris is thinking big for its 27th review, released in the spring of 2015. The Champs-Elysées cabaret has entrusted the production of its new show to Franco Dragone, an extraordinary director immensely talented. At the origin of the success of the Cirque du Soleil, of the Celine Dion show in Las Vegas, but also the author of the magnificent inaugural show of the Brazil World Cup in 2014, Franco Dragone deconstructs the show, shakes the stage, dares to poetry and creates dreams.
