Her extraordinary dramatic temperament joins forces with her majestic and sensual queenly bearing, the beauty of her warm mezzo tone with her consummate art of musical narration: Stéphanie d'Oustrac sets French song on fire and will be a Scheherazade of anthology, there’s no doubt about it!

Starting with Manet's painting La Musique aux Tuileries [Music in the Tuileries Gardens], in which Beaudelaire, Fantin-Lantour, Théophile Gautier, Offenbach, Rossini and the painter himself are represented during a concert in the garden, Stéphanie d'Oustrac and Pascal Jourdan have concocted a program that encompasses all of the musical genres in vogue during the Second Empire. The heroism of grand opera is matched by the irony of operetta, the sentimentality of salon romance, and the daring protest and undertones of the café-concert.
