An outrageous, corset-busting cabaret about a woman who knew one thing: good girls don’t make history.

Paris 1847. Marie Duplessis - courtesan, party girl, liar and legend – got out of bed, put on a dress, ordered a bottle of champagne, and sat alone in her Paris apartment to celebrate her birthday. She died 18 days later, aged 23.

Labelled by historians as the Princess Diana of her time, and the muse that inspired The Lady of the Camellias, La Traviata and Moulin Rouge!, Songs for the Fallen is an invitation to the decadent final party of the real-life woman who defied her fate and captivated a nation.

Australian cabaret star Sheridan Harbridge channels the delectable lady of pleasure, accompanied by a live electro-baroque score by Basil Hogios.

“Wonderfully rip-roaring, outrageous and fun, but it is the tinge of tragedy that really makes it sing.” - The Brag
