London's five-star girl, Cat Simoni takes her audience on a musical whistle-stop tour around the world to meet her favourite twentieth century divas, singing their hit songs in eight different languages.
Walk on a beach called Ipanema and meet a gorgeous bikini-girl called Astrid Gilberto singing to a samba rhythm, find yourself in a club in Athens dancing to Melina Mercouri's latest hit, linger on the streets of Paris where a 'little sparrow' they call 'Piaf' is singing her heart out for the man she loved and lost, touch down in Sixties London where the In-crowd are swinging Downtown to the hot sounds of Pet Clark, catch the silky jazzy notes of an orphan girl called Ella Jane Fitzgerald on a street corner in Harlem, the sublime voice of a girl called Barbra in Brooklyn and feel the heat in Hollywood when Italian sensation Sofia Loren starts swaying with her Mambo Italiano... In Berlin the Cold War is on but a bespectacled Nana Mouskouri is raising temperatures with her hit song, Weisse Rosen, and down in Mexico City a young woman, never kissed before, is singing a song she calls Besame Mucho to a sultry rumba beat...
There are thrilling surprises waiting in every new city when the audience board a brand new 707 to meet Cat Simoni's delightful and deliciously retro Divas Around the World!
Divas Around the World! was first performed by Cat Simoni on the MSC Sinfonia, between Mauritius and Reunion, and the songs are in English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, German and Greek.
Divas Around the World! is devised and directed by Paul Spence.
