Lights. Sequins. Action!

One of my favourite memories from high school has to be the jazz choir, Shooting Stars.  The first year the jazz choir was created we sang, among other songs, a medley of jazz favorites — “life is a cabaret old chum, come to the cabaret!” I absolutely loved it!  We had coordinating outfits too: guys in black pants, girls in black skirts, both topped by white shirts/blouses.  The kicker? The red cummerbund.  The only thing that would have made the costumes pop would have been sequins.  What’s a night at the cabaret without sequins?

On our last séjour in Paris, D and I stayed in the 9ème arrondissement, just a hop, skip, and a sashay from the Moulin Rouge.  I have yet to see a revue at the Moulin Rouge though.  D, who has already seen the popular Féérie, is waiting for the revue to change before taking me.

I did get my fill of sequins and feathers in December courtesy of the cabaret Séduction at the Casino Rhul.  To say I was looking forward to it was an understatement as we tend to do most of our going out/dining out in cities other than Nice.  Plus, there is something to be said about attractive bodies in barely there costumes.  It almost makes me wish I worked out more…  Almost.

We had bought tickets for dinner and the show for 64€ but for 24€ you can enjoy a coupe of champagne before the show.  And while the food did not blow me away, the evening itself was a lot of fun.  At the end of the night, the casino is yours to enjoy — if that’s your kind of thing — or you can take a walk along the Promenade and people watch.

Tip: Remember to bring your passport as it is required for your entry to the Casino.

    24EUR only? That’s a steal! If you buy Moulin Rouge tickets in Canada, without the dinner it’s still more than that. I have to say that I enjoy cabaret, even though some people think it’s cheezy.

      Yes, only 24€. Yes, the Moulin Rouge is far more expensive but, from what I understand and have seen, it’s grander. There are by far more performers; overall, it’s a bigger spectacle. That said, it’s pretty cool to have this cabaret show in Nice. And hey, it’s France, the land of a bazillion cheeses! 🙂
