Birkin/Gainsbourg le Symphonique" was born during the summer of 2016 thanks to the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal and the Francofolies de Montréal. Initially it was just a matter of giving two performances for his former partner to pay tribute to the great Gainsbourg on the 25th anniversary of his death.

These performances were so successful that they ended up touring the world, particularly in Asian countries where Serge Gainsbourg had not had the opportunity to perform in public. Jane performed her greatest hits on exceptional arrangements by Nobuyuki Nakajima (a Japanese musician, composer, arranger and pianist who studied composition in Tokyo and Paris). Noted not only for his masterful piano, but also for his talent as a composer and arranger of elegant and exciting ensembles, based on the impressive depth and variety of his musical knowledge), surrounded by the best symphony orchestras in the world.

Following this resounding success, Jane Birkin wished to continue to offer moments of intense joy to her fans as well as to Gainsbourg fans surrounded by a charming chamber orchestra! Brussels is no exception to this beautiful gift!

Most of the time the shows take place in the evening and who says evening also means finding a place to dine. This is where the restaurant Manola Bruxelles - Cirque Royal will enchant you with its relaxed Thai setting. Here you will find delicious Thai dishes in a Far Eastern atmosphere.

This restaurant is the third of the group and follows on from two Manola I and II restaurants which, thanks to their success, have led to the creation of a new Manola restaurant close to the Cirque Royal. Finally, in 2017, to complete the family, the Manola 3 was born. Open for lunch and dinner, you can enjoy a refined and varied cuisine in a beautiful house located on rue de l'enseignement, not far from the Cirque Royal. Three restaurants, three concepts: different menus, different schedules but always with the concern to provide authentic, quality cuisine prepared on the spot by our chefs.

Some important things to remember about the Cirque Royal in Brussels.

At the time, it was large and modern, because some 3,500 spectators each had a decent view of the ring from their seats. The orchestra pit above the entrance of the artists and circus animals could accommodate 40 musicians. Under the bleachers were storage areas and boxes for more than 100 (circus) animals, mainly horses. The arena was built in such a way that it could be filled with water, creating a swimming pool. The opening show was performed by the Renz equestrian troupe. The glory days of the beginning of the century, in addition to circus shows, also mention ballets, big events and even the first films.

A new management restored the tradition of horse shows, mainly large ones, from 1920 onwards. But also variety artists (Maurice Chevalier) were programmed.

After the Second World War, the building remained vacant for some time. It was completely renovated in 1953 according to the plans of the architect Charles Van Nueten. Only the foundations and the steel structure are still original. A modernist structure was built above them. It was for a long time the house of Maurice Béjart with his 20th century ballet.

Cultural Centre
Since the regionalisation of culture, the hall is the property of the City of Brussels. The Cirque Royal tries to target the programming to the Dutch and French-speaking public, despite the fact that it is managed in collaboration with another venue, Botanique, which belongs to the French Community.

In addition to performances by individual artists, singers or music groups, large shows or events continue to enjoy the hall because of its special, almost circular layout. The Cirque du Soleil is a regular visitor.

Discover the real flavors of Thailand prepared by talented chefs who guarantee and respect the tradition. Restaurant Manola in Brussels invites you to an unforgettable and tasteful voyage of discovery through Thai cuisine.
