Barry Humphries Weimar Cabaret at Cadogan Hall
Cadogan Hall, 5 Sloane Terrace, London, SW1X 9DQ
Barry Humphries returns to the stage with Weimar Cabaret at Cadogan Hall.
Australian icon Barry Humphries curates, presents and performs the degenerate music of Berlin’s Weimar Republic (1920s-30s) including jazz, cabaret, tango and Broadway-musical style pieces.
The hedonistic partying and social revolution of this era is re-awakened in this full-throttle concert featuring international cabaret sensation Meow Meow and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
Hear songs by Kurt Weill including The Threepenny Opera’s Pirate Jenny, see Barry Humphries and Meow Meow sing the duet Mousie and dance a tango, and join Barry as he rediscovers the lost music of Krenek, Schulhoff, Toch, Brand, Grosz and more.
A comedian, actor, satirist, artist and author, Humphries is best known for playing legendary alter egos Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson.
Barry Humphries Weimar Cabaret will run from 29 July 2016 until 3 August 2016 at Cadogan Hall.
