Directed by Geraldine Turner, Miranda Music Society's wonderful 2016 production of the 1968 revue, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris comes to Mittagong Playhouse after a short season at Riverside Studio, Parramatta.
Brel was part of the French-language art-song movement that reached its peak of international popularity in the 1950s and ’60s, led by such revered performers as Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour and Yves Montand. Brel too was beloved in his adopted home of Paris, and around the globe. But the riveting performer and prolific songwriter was an individualist, whose music ranges from the rhapsodically romantic to the caustically political. His songs have been covered by literally hundreds of singers in many different languages.
