The critically acclaimed Amélie The Musical is heading to the Opera House Manchester this August with a great cast. 

This beloved story of an imaginative and shy romantic with a gift for helping others, hit it’s UK tour with a vibrant, re-conception in April this year, and has garnered critical and public acclaim, leading to a sell-out season. The tour will be playing at the Opera House Manchester from the 6th to 10th August and will then continue the tour the UK until October this year.

Amélie is the story of an astonishing young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realises that to find her own contentment she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Although times are hard for dreamers, Amélie is someone to believe in…

During the Manchester leg of the show, French-Canadian stage and screen star Audrey Brisson will be playing ‘Amélie Poulain’ and West End performer, Strictly Come Dancing favourite and television actor Danny Mac will be playing the sweet daydreamer ‘Nino Quincampoix’.

The original film, Le Fabuleux Destin D’Amélie Poulain, was released in 2001, starring Audrey Tautou and Matthieu Kassovitz. Taking over $33 million in a limited theatrical release, it is to date the highest-grossing French-language film released in the United States, and one of the biggest international successes for a French film. Amélie won Best Film at the European Film Awards, four César Awards in 2002 (including Best Film and Best Director), two BAFTA Awards (including Best Original Screenplay), and was nominated for five Academy Awards, including best foreign language film.

Amélie The Musical was first staged in California in 2015 and was described as an ‘enchanting act of theatrical reinvention’ (The Los Angeles Times).
