The Vanguard presents
No Regrets - The Edith Piaf Story
Nikki Nouveau presents the intriguing life and times of legendary Parisian artist Edith Piaf through song and story. Delivered in French and English, this spellbinding and romantic show features classic numbers Padam, La Vie En Rose, Non Je Ne Regrette Rien along with other timeless pieces.
No Regrets eloquently weaves a tale of passion, tragedy and triumph taking the audience on a musical journey through songs right from the earliest days of Piaf’s singing career, when she was singing on street corners, through to the peak of her career as the toast of Paris and New York, and finally her tragic untimely death. Featuring piano and accordion by acclaimed Sydney musicians Andrew Scott and double-bassist Max Alduca.
A must see for lovers of all things French and little sparrow fans!

“Nouveau in full voice is mesmerising and her phrasing between singing and narrating is flawless.” - Theatre People
“An authentic musical experience which drips with talent and skill” – Alt Media
“Nouveau demonstrated the very best of cabaret with style and grace… She commanded both French and English perfectly to share her well-crafted story about her French idol” - Cabaret Scenes Magazine
“Sexy, fun, a little decadent and nicely polished. Nouveau takes us on a tour of classic songs of love and heartbreak from greats such as Brel and Piaf, and sings them with aplomb and sufficient melodrama.” - Arts Hub
“At times sexy, soulful, flirtatious or just simply hot, Nikki sang and reminisced the story of France’s Little Sparrow…An exceedingly enjoyable evening out”
