No Regrets

Travel to Europe may be off the books for now, but get as close as you can to an evening in a Paris cabaret with Sing'theatre's tribute to Edith Piaf, France's most iconic chanteuse.

The company marks its 15th anniversary with the revival of this revue, first produced in 2007. Its line-up includes local thespians Hossan Leong, Mina Ellen Kaye and Rebekah Sangeetha Dorai. Eighteen-year-old Maya Raisha also makes her stage debut.

They will perform 20 songs from the repertoire of Piaf, a legendary but troubled singer nicknamed "The Sparrow", including her signature numbers La Vie En Rose (Life In Pink) and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien (No Regrets).
