World renowned baritone, Peter Coleman-Wright AO, the fabulous Nexas Saxophone Quartet and stellar flutist Jane Rutter, bring their universally acclaimed musical-theatre piece to Street Theatre.
Dressed in period costume as composers Weill, Eisler, Schreker, Korngold, Stolz, with Jane Rutter as Lotte Lenya, the musicians talk and play in character in a thrilling program which features adaptations of Cabaret works by composers from the Weimar Era until World War, when many of the Weimar composers, like Weill, were forced into exile in the USA.
Following a hugely successful season at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, the show portrays the musical journeys of renowned German composers escaping Nazi tyranny with music and songs that capture the spirit of the times. Don’t miss this exciting performance which completely brings to life the music of Germany’s Weimar Republic and the war period immediately following.
