Juliette Gréco, the Grande Dame of French song, will appear in Warsaw's Kongresowa Hall March 20. Gréco draws inspiration for her songs from Bohemian France of the 1940s and '50s. She spent much time in the company of philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus and other well-known figures such as Simone de Beauvoir and Raymond Queneau. Gréco was once the muse of Miles Davis and Jean Cocteau. One of Gréco's most famous songs, "La Rue des Blancs-Monteaux," is inspired by Sartre's work.

At the end of the 1950s, the talented French singer attracted the attention of Hollywood and the famous producer Darryl Zanuck. Among other films, she acted in Henry King's The Sun Also Rises and John Huston's The Roots of Heaven. In the 1960s, Gréco played in the television series Belphegor, about the legendary phantom of the Louvre.

March 20 , Kongresowa Hall, Palace of Science and Culture, 1 Defilad Sq., Warsaw, 8 p.m., Tickets zl.80-190 from www.eventim.pl
