It’s a closed and unknown universe we explore in this 52-minute documentary about a year in the fascinating, glittery world of one of the most famous French cabarets—the Lido.

We watch the cabaret come to life as a spotlight shines on the charismatic creative forces—the most talented directors, choreographers, costume and set designers, musicians, and dancers from around the world, under the direction of Franco Dragone—behind this world-class French institution as they collaborate to uphold the singular tradition of the show while offering audiences brand new sights, sounds and sensations.

From interviews with international performers and creators, to peeks at rigorous rehearsals (and into the kitchen where chefs are busy devising the new menu), the documentary offers an exclusive look at the hours of hard work and creativity behind this spectacular night spot, where life is, indeed, a cabaret.
