MANCHESTER

The French-Canadian stage and screen star Audrey Brisson is confirmed to play the

iconic, altruist Amélie Poulain in the UK’s first musical adaptation of the much-loved,

five-time Oscar-nominated film,

Amélie

. Telling the story of the imaginative and shy

romantic with a gift for helping others,

Amélie The Musical

will tour the UK in a vibrant

re-conception of the production with new orchestrations, landing at the Opera House

Manchester from 6th-10th August. Amélie is the story of an astonishing young woman

who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She secretly improvises small, but

extraordinary acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her. But when a

chance of love comes her way, Amélie realises that to find her own contentment she’ll have

to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. The original film,

Le Fabuleux Destin D’Amélie

Poulain

, was released in 2001, starring Audrey Tautou and Matthieu Kassovitz. Taking over

$33 million, it is one of the biggest international successes for a French film.

Amélie The

Musical

was first staged in California in 2015 and was described as an ‘enchanting act

of theatrical reinvention’ by

The Los Angeles Times

.
