Who was Jacques Brel?

An iconic Belgian singer, songwriter, actor who composed and performed literate and theatrical songs making him a mysterious and legendary figure in the 1960s.
The story and music of Jacques Brel, one of the most popular singers of French songs, comes to life on stage with Alfredo Merat’s tribute to this music legend to mark the 40th year anniversary of his death. Brel was a master of la Chanson Francaise.
“The universe of Brel,” says Alfredo Merat, “his passions, his truth, his ironies, contradictions, his love, his hatred brings his real life in his songs and story.”
Merat has also invited special musical guests to help deliver a unique performance. The songs are in French with an English narrative. Songs include: “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” “Le Plat Pays,” “le Diable, ca va,” “Madeleine,” “Bruxelles,” “la Chanson de Jacky,” “Quand on n’a que l’amour,” “Le Moribond,” “Les Bonbons 64 & 67,” and more.
Merat has a few other surprises this year as he has been working with Director-writer, Stephen Hamilton and Broadway director, Randal Myler (“Janice”,”Ring of Fire”).
