En toute intimité is the title of both the CD and DVD from Lara Fabian's 2003 acoustic concerts at the Olympia in Paris. Both the CD and DVD were recorded during the concerts on February 2 & 3 2003.

This intimate, piano-based concert showcases acoustic versions of songs from Fabian's previous studio albums as well as many classic songs in Italian, French and English previously not recorded by Fabian. Many of Fabian's songs such as "J'y crois encore" were completely re-arranged to fit the acoustic sound.

On the CD and DVD, alongside some of Fabian's most remarkable hits and album tracks, are classics such as: Dalla's "Caruso" (performed by Fabian many times before); Jevetta Steele's "Calling you" from the Bagdad Café soundtrack; French singer Renaud's "Mistral Gagnant"; and a medley from the worldwide known Francophone musical "Starmania". The DVD contains some tracks which were left off the CD. Most notably, the DVD contains Fabian's homage to Celine Dion's biggest French classic "Pour que tu m'aimes encore". Fabian makes it clear how much respect and appreciation she had for the Canadian singer, despite years of media comparisons between the two. Also, Fabian took advantage of the intimacy in the room and closeness with the audience to share her passion for acting, creating a new dimension to many of her performances. Another highlight found only on the DVD is Fabian's rendition of Lama's "Je Suis Malade". This popular song was included on her album Carpe diem, recorded nine years before. This time around her performance of the song was a mixture of a spoken monologue and theatrical singing accompanied by a piano.
