Peter Straker is one of the leading voices of musical theatre, lending his unique range and tone to the original West End production of Hair, The Whoโ€™s Tommy, The Original Phantom of the Opera and The Rocky Horror Show.

Strakerโ€™s career spans 50 years, including recording albums with friend and colleague, Freddie Mercury. But now he is back in Edinburgh for a strictly limited run performing hits from the master of the modern chanson, Jacques Brel.

Straker is unquestionably the finest interpreter of Brelโ€™s songs. He does not just sing the words, he inhabits them. His dramatic delivery is full of passion, power and honesty.

Donโ€™t miss Peter Straker Sings Brel at the Pleasance Courtyard until 12th August 2018. Book online at or call the box office on 020 7609 1800.
