Cate the Great Gets Chevalier Medal

Cate Blanchett, currently touring Europe with Sydney Theatre Company's production of Gross Und Klein capped her Paris run by being awarded the Chevalier Medal. It is one of France's highest awards for the arts. Ms. Blanchett was presented the Chevalier de l'Ordre des arts et des lettres by French Culture Minister, Frederic Mitterand. The award recognizes significant achievement in arts and literature. To read more about this, click here.

STC's production of Gross Und Klein just finished their tour in Paris and is opening in London this weekend. After that, it's on to Vienna and Germany. I'll be seeing this production in a few weeks and I'm giddy with anticipation!
