The Paris Salon was a centre of hedonistic social and artistic life and none was finer than the one run by Winaretta Singer, heiress to the Singer Sewing Machine fortune and a grand patron of the arts. Yet this formidable and enigmatic woman, also a talented musician and artist, did not merely host performances for entertainment and kudos. Her energies transformed the salon into a crucial creative force that became the birthplace of pioneering music by Faure, Debussy and many others. Actress Maggie Steed as Winaretta will introduce this exclusive world inhabited by Proust, Diaghilev, Isadora Duncan, Jean Cocteau, Virginia Woolf and Colette.
