Back by popular demand, 54 Below presents renowned international chanteuse and star of Broadway’s Chicago, Ute Lemper with her new show, Lili Marleen – From Weimar to Theresienstadt.
Ute Lemper takes us back to Weimar Republic Berlin and its music, theatre, and cabaret scene. After the Nazis destroyed Weimar culture in 1933, the ‘Kabarett in the Exile’ was formed briefly by Brecht and Eisler. What followed their expression of truth was the extraordinary music written by the Jewish prisoners in the Ghettos and Theresienstadt. In an epilogue, Marlene Dietrich asks: “Where have all the flowers gone?”
Featuring Vana Gierig on Piano, and Cyrus Beroukhim on violin.
