The festive season in Paris sees the city’s famous boulevards twinkling with illuminations and its tables heaving with gastronomic delights.

We met with choirs across France who are all looking to shake up their Christmas repertoires, and look at why musical theatre is the hot ticket at the end of the year here in the French capital.
