Een eerbetoon aan Charles Aznavour

Een anderhalf jaar na het overlijden van Charles Aznavour herdenkt de Franse acteur en zanger Daniel Roval het leven van deze geweldige artiest met wie hij zich als zoon van een migrant  nauw verbonden voelt.
In een theatervoorstelling met fotos, filmfragmenten,  interviews, en vooral ook de chansons van Aznavour brengt hij – begeleid door vier talentvolle muzikanten –  zijn landgenoot opnieuw tot leven.

Hierbij wordt hij vergezeld door vier getalenteerde muzikanten met wie hij vele jaren in verschillende projecten heeft samengewerkt: Stanley Haywood (Keyboard, klarinet), Lorand Sarna (Gitaar, Basgitaar), Jim Sernesky (Percussies, trompet).
‘Formidable Aznavour’ speelt zich af op het podium van ons kleine muziektheater. Maar je zult het oude Parijs overal om je heen voelen met zijn straatlantaarns, rokerige bars en eindeloze trappen. Voeg er een lekker drankje aan toe, veel fantasie, en de show kan beginnen.


A year and a half after the death of Charles Aznavour, and for his second visit by the Munganga, the French actor and singer Daniel Roval brings us his successful ‘Formidable Aznavour’ which commemorates the life of this wonderful world popular artist, and with whom he feels closely related as a son of a migrant artist family himself..
Throughout this theatrical and poetic musical performance with photo projections, spoken texts, short interviews, film fragments, and some of the best of Aznavour’s songs, Daniel Rovai takes us on the path of the young Charles, in the miserable attics rooms of starving artists, on the trail of travelling shows with their colorful tents and trucks, or on the streets of Paris in August for a tearful lost love story.
Daniel Rovai is accompanied by his three talented musicians with whom he has collaborated for many years on various projects: Stanley Haywood (Keyboard, clarinet), Lorand Sarna (Guitar, Bass guitar), and Jimmy Sernesky (Percussion, trumpet).
‘Formidable Aznavour’ is set on the stage of our small music theatre. But you will feel the old Paris all around you with its street lights, smoky bars and endless stairs. Add a nice drink from our bar, lots of imagination, and the show can begin.

‘ With true heart and great panache, multi talented French actor / singer Daniel Rovai transports you with all the flavors a la Française to the world of Charles Aznavour, the man, his life and his wonderful songs.
Daniel’s infectious emotions, soul and warm stage presence captures perfectly the magical essence or Aznavour accompanied by his virtuoso musicians.
Don’t miss it, it’s just Formi Formi Formidable!…’ (David Baird)
