Barry Humphries Weimar Cabaret

Barry Humphries Weimar Cabaret Tickets London

Barry Humphries takes to the stage as our much esteemed and seasoned master of ceremonies alongside cabaret diva Meow Meow at the Barbican in this wonderfully risqué, sophisticated and totally seductive tribute to the jazz-infused music of the Weimar Republic.

It is sometimes described as the golden age of cabaret: the remarkable period in 1920s and 30s’ Berlin where night clubs were full of hedonistic partying and social revolution providing an endless stream of decadent entertainment. That spirit in is now reawakened this revelatory concert, as our hosts acquaint us with the oft-forgotten composers of yesteryear, whose (mainly Jewish) art would soon be condemned as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis.

Humphries sets aside Dame Edna, his alter ego to share with us his personal passion for a period in history that has long fascinated him, and his witty anecdotes and irreverent asides provide hilarious interludes to a whole treasure trove of songs and instrumentals which are followed by Meow Meow who then present us with Kurt Weill standards alongside Friedrich Hollaender, Ernst Krenek and Erwin Schulhoff, who are all accompanied live onstage by the Aurora Orchestra.
