Lemercier, Paris This is the poster for Loïe Fuller's inaugural Paris performance, opening November 5, 1892, at the Folies-Bergère.

She enthralled not only its usual patrons but many others who seldom if ever had been inside such a lowbrow music hall. In doing so, she helped to transform the Folies-Bergère, giving it a new respectably, and she made herself one of the city's top celebrities" (Loïe Fuller/Current, p. 50). (dance, loie fuller)
