About the Musical
Often haunting, sometimes humorous, always vividly dramatic, the songs of Belgian troubadour Jacques Brel have been recorded by countless artists throughout the world. Encompassing themes of joy and sorrow, love and loss, life and death, this compilation of Brel’s finest work celebrates the diverse complexity of the human heart.
The poetic imagination of the man often hailed as Europe’s answer to Bob Dylan infuses one of the world’s most enduringly popular musical revues.
Suitable for all ages, but Brel’s sophisticated, cabaret-style songs, often tinged with melancholy, may not hold particular appeal for pre-teenage children.
