Presidio Theatre Presents “Patricia Sings Piaf”

The Presidio Theatre presents American soprano and director Patricia Racette in Patricia Sings Piaf Friday and Saturday, April 19 and 20 at 7:30 pm.

An iconic artist of our time, the Grammy Award-winning soprano and arranger/accompanist Craig Terry conjure the timeless power and viscerally authentic impact of French singer Édith Piaf (1915-1963), whose music gave voice to the mid-twentieth century, transcending language and borders.

“For me, Piaf is a shining example through words and music. Great artist. Great actor. Great chanteuse,” says Racette. “I want to evoke Piaf without ever crossing the line of trying to imitate her. I want to create an experience.” Tickets, priced $50-$75, may be purchased at .

Patricia Racette is acclaimed on the world’s opera and concert stages and is a particular favorite of San Francisco Opera audiences, celebrated for her deeply emotional performances, impeccable technique and dramatic range. Throughout her career, Racette has been acclaimed for her courage, confidence, vulnerability, and honesty onstage. These are also qualities for which Piaf was widely known, making her artistry an ideal fit for Racette’s gifts.
