According to popular wisdom, there is always a woman behind each great man. Paulette Coquatrix, the wife of the man at the origin of the Olympia, is one more example of this phrase. The Olympia celebrated his 50 years anniversary on February 5th 2004. We have revived 50 years of French and international songs thanks to Paulette Coquatrix’s memories. This woman may have remained behind the scene but without her this famous concert hall couldn’t have existed and wouldn’t be the same.
