The show was sponsored by the Government of the State of Rio de Janeiro, through the Edict of Culture 2008 promoted by the Secretary of State for Culture of the Government of the State of Rio de Janeiro.


With a decadent cabaret-theater as a backdrop, the show tells the story of Madame, Divina, Mignon,

Mimosa III, Our Lady of Flowers and Genet. All this wrapped up in a lot of sordid suspense, where everyone wants to be Madame. Madame has no sex, Madame has no color, Madame has no age. All are like angels. And angels must die. The plot brings a fictional biographical plot about the universe of Jean Genet, through the vision of director and playwright Ribamar Ribeiro.
