The LIDO, Paris

The LIDO, Cabaret, Paris, backstage reportage

Get Started


This project is one of my most amusing photo stories. The LIDO is one of the leading cabarets of Paris. A true mythic place. The figures talking for them selfs: 300 000 champagne bottles per year, 2 000 000 crystals, 500 000 visitors per year, 35 cooks, 300 light projectors, 200 kilos of feathers for the show, 45 instrument orchestra, 1 skeating rink, 50 dancers, 4 shows per night!

The exceptional machinery gives life to breathtaking sets. An entire city is transformed before your eyes, blurring the boundaries of space and time. A fantastical journey in which the emblems of the French capital are scattered through the various scenes. The upbeat choreographies led by the famous Bluebell Girls and Lido Boys succeed one another at a frenzied pace. The extravagant hats and magnificent costumes are decorated with beautiful feathers and sparkle with a thousand lights. Dare to take a new look at Art Nouveau, stopover at the foot of our famous Iron Lady, admire the fashion shows, and much more.
