“«The Poetic Justice of The Dark Blue Orchestra», a rock cabaret musical about the hyper-sensitive son of a classical composer and a ballet dancer, exchanged at birth with the heir of the local mafia boss. This delightfully offbeat show takes us through the young years of Donnie DiMartino while he is grappling with his sensitivity and true identity, in a world he clearly does not belong to. For an hour the public will travel through 20 songs which recount this peculiar true story in sound and image, where video art is laced with catchy rock tunes in the vein of "Tommy" or "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust" and punctuated with string interludes where the chorus exposes the plot in sound and images. This wise blend of sing-along and far-out creativity has ravished the Parisian public in the last year. Don't miss it!”
