Singer Juliette Gréco, a legend of lyrical French chanson, is performing in Warsaw's Sala Kongresowa Jan. 16.

Gréco became one of the stars of French bohemian circles of the 1940s and '50s. She was friends with existentialist thinkers such as Jean Paul Sartre and Albert Camus, as well as philosopher Simone de Beauvoir and poet and novelist Raymond Queneau. Gréco was a muse for jazz musician Miles Davis and poet and novelist Jean Cocteau. One of her best known songs, "La Rue des Blancs-Monteaux" was inspired by the work of Sartre.

In the late 1950s she was spotted by Hollywood, especially film producer Darryl Zanuck. She starred in pictures such as The Sun Also Rises by Henry King and The Roots of Heaven by director John Huston.

Jan. 16 , Sala Kongresowa, 1 Defilad Sq., 8 p.m., tickets: zl.80-190, www.eventim.pl, tel. 22 425 37 47.
