Melbourne Cabaret Festival presents Nikki Nouveau in a delicious theatrical affair unveiling the alluring enigma of Marlene Dietrich through song and story.
At one time Hollywood’s highest paid actress, Marlene Dietrich died penniless. Her fascinating story is re-imagined through her famous character Lola Lola in the classic 1930’s film The Blue Angel.
The show is set in Weimar Republic Berlin and unmasks the trials of an ageing film star, from her early beginnings as a musician, an under recognised performance career in cabaret and theatre, through to her emergence as a shining legend of the silver screen.
Featuring a repertoire of cabaret classics, including ‘Falling In Love Again’, ‘Lili Marlene’ and ‘La Vie En Rose’, accompanied by piano and musical saw. Delivered in German, French and English.
Kabaret Dietrich is a uniquely inspiring interpretation of one of the greatest style icons of our time. Bookings highly recommended.
