fantômes

October 14, 2022 - October 16, 2022

Recurring daily 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
ABOUT:
This October 14-16 at the Marigny Opera House, enjoy a dance performance like no other, focused on the ghost stories and legends of New Orleans. 
 
In a city with old bones, the mystery and allure of those who came here once before remain…
 
Mélange Dance Company presents: fantômes, a spooky time warp to the swampy beginnings of New Orleans, dripped in jazz music and sin, filled with old ghost stories and legends brought to life through contemporary dance and live music by Gabrielle Cavassa and Ryan Hanseler.
 
Notorious New Orleans ladies tell our tale, like Josie Arlington, Lulu White, the spirit of the French Opera House, and the dangerous women of Smokey Row; these women knew how to cleverly navigate the vice district in an era of scarce opportunity. Discover Julie, the beautiful ghost of love whose marriage dare ends in hypothermic tragedy on a Royal Street rooftop and Mily Bailey, the lost bride who still waits in white for her fallen soldier at the Dauphine Orleans Hotel. Twelve months and a day, we explore our signature cities of the dead and listen for the haunting bells of yellow fever. These stories of tragedy and triumph blur the lines between past and present, still breathing energy and life into our intricate city streets. Like Arlington’s Flaming Tomb, we illuminate and honor the fascinating lives of these souls while finding harmony living among these uniquely infinite spirits, and, what was in those caskets?
