Novelist Sidonie Gabrielle Claudine Colette (1873-1954) gave a woman's voice of immense insight, wit, sensitivity and boulevard charm to the Belle Époque. Leslie Caron, the baby-faced ballerina discovered by Gene Kelly, delightfully played Colette's gamine Gigi in the Lerner and Loewe musical film version of the 1943 novella or, more properly, récit. When writer and performer meet again in these two audio productions, an especially happy reunion they should have. Indeed, Caron's Gallic sprightliness and mischief are particularly evident in GIGI.
