World Premiere

The inspiration to Dylan’s frankness, Cohen’s confessional songs and Bowie’s bravado, Jacques Brel was an incomparable trailblazer. Almost 40 years after his untimely passing, Ali McGregor directs a corps of festival artists in this moving homage to the greatest popular singer in the French language and master of modern chanson. The Belgian singersongwriter’s pathos, wit and intensity are captured in unique re-interpretations of story-songs that delve into love, death and desperation.

Directed by Ali McGregor
Musical direction by Charly Zastrau (Sven Ratzke/Joey Arias)

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre
