Barry Humphries' Weimar Cabaret Tickets

Barbican Theatre, London, EC2Y 8DS
  • Don't miss Barry Humphries' Weimar Cabaret at the Barbican Theatre - a risqué, sophisticated and seductive tribute to the jazz-infused music of the Weimar Republic, featuring cabaret diva Meow Meow.

    Some describe it as cabaret’s golden age: the remarkable period in 1920s and 30s’ Berlin when hedonistic partying and social revolution turned nightclubs into hotbeds of decadent entertainment. Reawakening that spirit in this revelatory concert, our hosts acquaint us with the oft-forgotten composers of the time, many Jewish, whose art would soon be condemned as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis, dancing as it did on the edge of a precipice.

    Best known as Dame Edna Everage, Barry Humphries sets aside his alter ego to share his personal passion for a period that has long fascinated him. Packed with witty anecdotes and irreverent asides, his Weimar Cabaret promises to be a treasure trove of songs and instrumentals.

    Chanteuse Meow Meow performs Kurt Weill standards alongside rarities from Friedrich Hollaender, Ernst Krenek and Erwin Schulhoff. The event will be accompanied live onstage by London’s trailblazing Aurora Orchestra.
