Alive and Brel
June 6 @ 19:30 - 21:30£10
‘Alive and Brel’ made its debut as part of Three Choirs Plus in Hereford in 2012 and also featured in the Festival fringe in Gloucester the following year. Since then, the trio have brought their intimate cabaret to studio theatres across the region.
The finest songs from the iconic master of the modern chanson, Jacques Brel, come to life when this trio of singers perform their cabaret revue, ‘Alive and Brel’. Featuring well-known classics such as Ne me quitte pas/If You Go Away, Amsterdam and Jacky, Brel’s music is famed for its emotional power and ironic wit. His songs have been likened to miniature films, laced with dark and passionate observations which paint a tableau of imperfect humanity. The songs of Jacques Brel are guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips or a tear to your eye.
‘A pleasant surprise package…very capable of depicting Brel’s catalogue. The blending of the three voices was particularly pleasing and gave the performance originality.’—Simon Bishop, Stage Talk Magazine
An enchanting way to end an evening.’—Hereford Times
