A new translation of the Jacques Brel classic by the Black Veils, a project to bring French "chanson" and other musical traditions to an Anglophone audience. This video includes clips from the 1984 production of Sophocles' Oedipus the King, starring the dashing Michael Pennington and the glorious Claire Bloom. The performance compliments drama and pathos expressed in Jacques Brel's song. We have tried to preserve both in our translation and performance. For more of our work, see www.blackveils.com.
