The Words and Music of Jacques Brel

The Words and Music of Jacques Brel

Dark, sardonic, passionate, witty, revolutionary – Jacques Brel’s musical narratives form a life- affirming take on the human condition.

From Amsterdam to 
Ne Me Quitte Pas,
these songs transcend time and place and his music has been performed by legends including
David Bowie, Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen and Martha Wainwright.

In Silo’s hit production, iconic Kiwi rock stars
Jon Toogood and Julia Deans join revered singers Jennifer Ward-Lealand and Tama Waipara to interpret Brel’s infamous songbook. Directed by Michael
Hurst and featuring a stellar band led by Leon Radojkovic.

The Words and Music of Jacques Brel will have you on your feet and coming back for more.

Profound. Intimate. Bold. Cabaret noir.
