Monsieur Camembert’s Leonard Cohen Show
Ring the Bells: Triple ARIA Winners to perform their acclaimed Leonard Cohen Show at The Sydney Opera House With special guests Abby Dobson (Leonardo’s Bride), Angela Fabian (The Voice 2020), Gregg Arthur, Susie Bishop, Bukhu, Victor Valdes & more!
“An uplifting tribute…Yaron Hallis’ singing brings joie de vivre to the originals. Monsieur Camembert does justice to the emotional, lyrical and melodic intent of the songs while adding a new dimension.” – Weekend Australian
After massive, critically acclaimed sold-out shows at Sydney’s City Recital Hall in 2017, 2018 & 2019, Monsieur Camembert returns with its all-star, blockbuster show celebrating the life, music, poetry of iconic Canadian poet songwriter Leonard Cohen.
Drawing on material that spans 35 years, Monsieur Camembert’s entirely original interpretations traverse styles rarely (if ever) associated with Cohen, including swing, jazz, tango, Latin, klezmer and more. Linking the songs with Cohen’s remarkable poetry and prose, the show also features audio fragments of Cohen himself.
For 22 years, Sydney’s own three-time ARIA-award-winning band Monsieur Camembert has been performing and touring its joyful, wild and wonderful repertoire, playing capacity concert halls nationally and internationally, including headlining the International Leonard Cohen Festival in Canada.
“Here’s your cure for received notions/nonsense about Cohen as a byword for gloom! Spirited, musically assured, eclectic and downright fun. They never imitate Cohen, but do right by him, with glee…and sensitivity.” (Doug Spencer, ABC Radio National)
