Tournee Milo de Meyer (1897/1898)

Milo de Meyer, who did a stint at the Car­il­lon as a cabaret singer in addi­tion to some com­pos­ing, felt more com­fort­able as an admin­is­tra­tor, if his por­trait by Grün is to be believed: Jovial and ruddy, an emblem­atic cat on his shoul­der the car­i­ca­ture of a «grosse tête» on short legs. Every sum­mer, led by Rodolphe Salis’ the Chat Noir, all of the cabarets went on tours in France and through­out Europe. Many Milo de Meyer-like types attempted to do the same, most of them meet­ing with short-lived success.
