​​"Marlene is back" is a theatre play produced by French fashion designer Pierre Cardin who also conceived the costumes of the show. In this portrait, Marlene Dietrich, one of the most fascinating actresses and singers of the 20th century, is revealed to the public. Behind the mask was hiding an inventive soul, a sensitive heart, a creative mind, dominated by a strong sense of rigor and discipline. This fragile and radiant beauty lived as a free woman, tasting the savors of love but always mastering her desires. She shined like a dazzling star across victories and defeats, aspirations and illusions. A woman of courage, she renounced her German nationality in protest against the Nazi regime.

The play will be performed in French, subtitled in English.
