The poignant, passionate and profound songs of Jacques Brel are brought to vivid theatrical life in this intense musical experience. The sheer musical poetry of each song supports many layers of interpretation, and Brel's legendary romance, humor and moral conviction are evoked simply and directly. The result is a powerful, intimate, bold and emotional evening of theater.
Brimming with flair, attitude and European sophistication, these rich compositions bring to mind the groundbreaking work of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht, creating a universe all their own that consistently startles with its daring, candor and insight.
