Alive and Brel features popular hits such as Ne Me Quitte Pas (If You Go Away), Jackie and Amsterdam as well as other iconic songs that paint a vivid portrait of imperfect humanity with all of its passions and flaws.

The cabaret revue is a celebration of Brel’s role as the inspiration for so many great vocalists and as a cornerstone of French culture.
