Spotlight: Adrien Mastrosimone

Hailing from Marignane in the South of France, Mastrosimone boasts an impressive professional career. He began as a dancer with the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, Switzerland, moving on to work with European companies such as Alias Compagnie in Geneva and Les Jeunes Ballets de France in Paris and even performing a season of ‘Les Follies de Paris’ in Reno, Nevada.

In 2006 Mastrosimone moved to London where he was immediately cast as The Fiddler in the West End production of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ at the Savoy Theatre. Performances at The Royal Opera House followed as well as a working on the premier of Medea at the ENO.

Having later trained at one of the world’s top Conservatoires, Mastrosimone turned his attention to writing his own shows, starting with his first sell out cabaret show for the Toulouse Lautrec, Kennington in 2017, entitled ‘Mon Manège à Moi’. In spring 2018, he returned with a brand new critically acclaimed show ‘Une Vie en Rose’, based on the life and songs of Edith Piaf. The show went on to win the award for Best Music Performance at the Buxton Fringe Festival.

For 2019, Mastrosimone returns to his cabaret home, the Toulouse Lautrec in Kennington with a new monthly residency entitled simply ‘A Night at the Cabaret with Adrien’. Featuring an array of European music and accompanied by his band, the show promises to be playful, queer and sometimes thought provoking. This unique evening of storytelling through song, movement and music is not to be missed.

The show opens on the 28th February and then on the last Thursday of every month.
