The information that will appeal to the nostalgic 80s: the rock opera "Starmania" will be staged in 2020, 40 years after its first performance in France, April 10, 1979.

This cyberpunk musical by Michel Berger on a libretto by Luc Plamondon will be edited by Thomas Jolly, who has already adapted the works of William Shakespeare, Henry VI and Richard III in France.

Over the years, this very first French-language rock opera had revealed many musicians, such as Daniel Balavoine, Diane Dufresne, France Gall, and Maurane, and had been performed in English by big names in the song, including Céline Dion and Cindy Lauper.

If no name has yet filtered for the new cast, we know that the seventh version of "Starmania" is programmed at the musical Seine, in Boulogne - Billancourt, from October 6, 2020. Places are on sale from this Tuesday.

A national tour of the Zeniths is already planned in the wake.
