Kabarett played a crucial role in the German musical culture between the two world wars. It combines theatre, comedy, songs and dance.
The first german Kabarett was founded in 1900 by Ernst von Wolzogen, but it blossomed in the ‘20s and ‘30s thanks to a renewed political freedom which coincided with a new cultural awakening in Germany. Leading figures like the actor and Kabarett peformer Karl Valentin influenced the musical theatre until the ‘70s. Ute Lemper, an emotional and unique voice, together with two extraordinary musicians will revisit the world of Kabarett and the music by Weill, Hllaender, Schiffer, Spoliansky, Brecht and Eisler, trying to relive the revolutionary spirit of that golden age before it turned into a destructive mightmare.
