La Vie en Rose is a “classical romantic concert” features music by some of France’s most beloved composers and will be conducting a three-city tour of Vancouver Island, one of which will see the performance come to our very own Tidemark Theatre.
Under the creative direction of London-based Renee James Productions and award-winning international producer Anthony James, the performances in Nanaimo on Feb. 12, Campbell River’s Tidemark Theatre on Feb. 16 and Victoria on Feb. 17, will star Grammy nominee and international violin virtuoso Pablo Diemecke, renowned Canadian pianist Tony Booker and Ballet Etoile Canada principal dancers Ashley Evans and Ian Szkolak.
La Vie en Rose is a new, classically-based romantic concert set in Paris and features breathtaking and stirring compositions by some of the most celebrated French composers including Elgar, Kreisler, Baptiste, Brel, Ravel, and Yepez accompanied by exquisite dancing by Ballet Etoile Canada principal dancers.
The concert brings to the stage a vibrant mix of stunning music and dance making for a truly intimate concert. A classical production that is sure to touch the heart and make for a perfect evening out this Valentine’s week.
Renee James Productions was formed in early 2017 as a rebrand of Ocean Entertainment Worldwide which was founded in 1995. The rebranding was implemented after James went from a sole proprietorship to a partnership format in order to expand the enterprise more effectively across borders. It now operates in both Canada and the United Kingdom.
Renee James Productions is recognized primarily for creating, producing, and presenting Broadway musicals, film, television, stage plays, dance, fashion, literary, spoken word, and concert production. La Vie en Rose marks the company’s second Canadian West Coast presentation.
