Mari Haugen Smistad as Edith Piaf *NEW DATES*

Palmehaven, 23rd May 2021 - 24th May 2021

Mari Haugen Smistad has been called 'the small girl with the big voice'. Her ability to engage and touch the audience through singing in both French and Norwegian, interspersed with humour, a dose of temperament and a peek at the life of Édith Piaf, will be on stage in Palmehaven this coming May.

UPDATE: We can confirm that the concerts with Mari Smistad Haugen have been rescheduled for the 23rd and 24th of May. If you have purchased a ticket to the planned event earlier in the year, you will be contacted shortly and either offered a refund or new tickets at a later date when the concert is rescheduled.

In spring 2021 Palmehaven will become life's stage, as we journey to Paris, from victory to defeat, but where the greatest tragedy of all is love and our experiences of it.

We are repeating the success of 2020's La Vie En Rose concert in Palmehaven. A French atmosphere will be created when Mari Haugen Smistad performs La Vie En Rose with the songs of Édith Piaf in January.

Édith Piaf's musicality and life was made to be celebrated. In Palmehaven next year we are doing just that, and we have secured Trondheim's own Mari Haugen Smistad to make the magic. Edith Piaf, was called the little sparrow, and had a communicative power far beyond the ordinary and whose influence lives. Mari has herself been called den lille jente med den store stemmen (the little girl with the big voice), and she will take to the stage with her incredible performance as Édith Piaf's persona.
