Monsieur Camembert brings their critically acclaimed show based on the music and poetry of iconoclastic Canadian songwriter Leonard Cohen to City Recital Hall. Drawing on material that spans some 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 10 years, three time ARIA-winning Monsieur Camembert has been touring this show, playing capacity concert halls nationally and internationally, including headlining the International Leonard Cohen Festival in Canada. For this unmissable City Recital Hall event, the 11-piece line-up will celebrate the life, music and words of Leonard Cohen with special guests Deborah Conway, Abby Dobson and Diana Rouvas.
"A must for Cohen and Camembert fans alike" Sydney Morning Herald
"If you like Leonard Cohen, you ought to hear Monsieur Camembert’s Famous Blue Cheese… Spirited, musically assured, eclectic and downright fun. They never imitate Cohen, but do right by him, with glee...and sensitivity." Weekend Planet, ABC Radio National
