8th arr., 116 bis avenue des Champs-Elysées
At the Lido, past and present shows are one and the same thing, which is to say they are always marvelous, impeccable, diabolically controlled, lavishly tricky and artificially dazzling. Who cares if there are busloads of Japanese tourists, soccer team members and auto dealers in the room? After all, it is dimly lit. Besides, there are also bare-breasted girls appearing out of the ceiling, helicopters battling one another among the stars, typhoons devastating the stage in a stream of foam, stage areas vanishing underground, and dolphins cavorting in a pool. Sets are forever going up and down, turning around, and vanishing in the most elaborate mechanized stage in the world. Then why is it that some people are bored by it all? Because many of these sets are so overdone and infinitely cretinous that many spectators grow instantly tired of seeing them. Thank heaven there are a lot of absolutely perfect traditional nimbers performed by jugglers, illusionists, contortionists and acrobats. Only the Lido can offer you that.
