Our fans had the opportunity to attend a performance dedicated to the rugged film and theatre actor Jean-Paul Belmondo at an extraordinary concert of the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in 2022. The remarkable success of the event and our admiration of this legendary actor has led us to revisit our project, Reviens Bébel!This time as part of the Prague Proms.

Jean-Paul Belmondo, nicknamed Bébel, excelled in star roles as irresistible adventurers or cynical heroes. In collaboration with the greatest French film makers, he showed courage and superb physical acumen, able to take on even the riskiest scenes without doubles or stuntmen. He could also play psychologically demanding characters with bravura. The famous actors Jean Gabin and Alain Delon were his partners in film, while the mesmerising Tunisian Italian actress Claudia Cardinale exemplifies his colleagues of the female persuasion.

The concert, which is held in the Smetana Hall of the Municipal House in Prague, invites listeners to enjoy the most famous film melodies that are forever inseparably entwined with the one-and-only Bébel. Conducted by Italy’s Marcello Rota, the programme includes music from hits like Hold-Up, Cop or HoodThat Man from Rio,Breathless, or Le Magnifique.
