When it was released in 1999, the jukebox musical Mamma Mia! swiftly became a phenomenon. Full of energy and good humour, the production enjoyed immediate success that became truly global when a movie version was made a few years later. This autumn, Mamma Mia! returns to the Casino de Paris to delight us all over again. Remember to reserve your seats so you can enjoy this musical treasure during your break at the Hôtel Volney Opéra.
An extraordinary musical comedy
Although it includes the greatest hits of ABBA, the Swedish superstar group of the 70s and early 80s, Mamma Mia! does not narrate the story of the band itself. Instead, the timeless melodies of Dancing Queen, Money, Money, Money, The Winner Takes It All and other pop classics serve to place emotional emphasis in all the right places of a story guaranteed to make you smile. On a magnificent Greek island, young Sophie is about to get married. For the occasion, she invites three men who could be her father, whose identity she never knew. Her mother, unaware of this, finds her two childhood friends. It becomes an opportunity to relive happy days, get to know each other again, and to party.
An evening at the Casino de Paris
Over the decades, the Casino de Paris has become a legendary venue that has hosted performances by the biggest names on the French and international scene. It also offers hit musicals, comedy shows and other theatrical productions. When it presents Mamma Mia!, from October 21st, 2023 to January 21st, 2024, there is no doubt that the Casino de Paris will once again draw the crowds. It will be easy for you to get there as it’s only a fifteen-minute walk from the Hôtel Volney Opéra.
