“Patrick et ses Fantômes”( Patrick and his Ghosts), a unique play that features  Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and Satie on stage, is playing at the theater Casino de Paris in, well you guessed it, Paris. Jean-Claude Dumesnil is the producer and Normand Chouinard is the director. This extraordinary play was written by Norman Chaurette.

Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, a famous French radio announcer on the radio station Radio Classique, is in Canada and imagines these composers coming back to life and the results are fantastic! First Papageno-Wolfgang Amadeus  Mozart appears dressed as he would have been in his era.  He is very active as he moves about the stage.  The symphony orchestra is directed by Jean-Pacal and is 24 musicians strong. Mozart asks what year it is and Patrick and the members of the orchestra tell him it is 2018.

The orchestra enthusiastically plays excerpts from Mozart’s symphonies.  Afterward, the others:  Jean-Sebastian  Bach, Ludwig Van Beethoven, and Eric Satie appear in their attire from their eras.  They are all surprised to be alive and well in Canada with Patrick. The orchestra plays excerpts from their symphonies.

Jean-Pascal Hamelin, the orchestra director, displays great talent when he plays the piano.

What a great experience to see the composers in their costumes and hear the music of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven which was performed for the public, kings, and emperors.

The play is also very humorous and the audience enjoys many laughs.

Even for those not understanding French, this play is fantastic to see.  Patrick, not a professional actor, gives an outstanding performance. The music and costumes and the actors, who are fantastic and also comical, make the play very enjoyable. The play is running until May 13, 2018.
