Cabaret end of the night is a theatrical and music that evokes the Belle Epoque and its corollary, the Great War; a journey into a strange music hall where artistic vision takes over pageant.
The songs from the repertoire of the café-concert are sometimes comic or romantic, but those that were chosen are all about the society of the time. Entertainment and even political realists songs resonate to create a subjective vision of the Belle Époque when technical revolutions, social and artistic abound. Songs staged, inspired by the music hall and theater numbers create an impressionistic time to rediscover projection.
Large fragments of the short piece of Feydeau was purged Baby!, Written in 1910, supports this point of the Belle Époque to the Great War. His characters are laboratory mice which we observe the determined blindness leading to the collapse of the individual universe in which they are agitated. Because the horrors of war will gradually darken the bright colors of this cabaret, allegory of war inexorably takes precedence over all other parts of society.
In the mirror of the Belle Époque, we also discover that each society shapes the people who compose it. It can allow child labor, the peremptory judgment prostitutes, the degrading foreign, sexism against women, enslavement and exploitation. We find the claim of civil and social rights, the emergence of innovative artistic movements. We find the need to stun the political power of the art entertainment and the power of war propaganda mixed with extreme nationalism.
