Barry Humphries Weimar Cabaret at the Barbican

Barbican Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Barry Humphries returns to the stage with Weimar Cabaret at London’s Barbican Centre.

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 accompanied by Aurora Orchestra, led by Satu Vänskä.

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 11 July 2018 until 29 July 2018 at the Barbican Theatre, London.
