CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Welcome to the cabaret of degenerate music! Where you can be just who you want to be! In a ground-breaking collaboration between the Gate Theatre and ENO we are thrilled to present a cabaret of riotous, witty, and shockingly prophetic songs, banned by the Nazis in the 1930s. As the Nazis identified difference as something to be afraid of, the Weimar cabaret scene danced on with songs that celebrated it. With artists from Brecht and Weill to Schoenberg, this subversive underground scene was bursting at the seams with brilliant, visionary voices. No surprise then, that they were censored, exiled, and incarcerated shortly after as 'degenerates'. And their songs have been all but lost since. Until now. Sung in EnglishPerformers Peter Brathwaite (baritone), Katie Bray (mezzo-soprano), Le Gateau Chocolat, Lucy McCormick, Fra Rustumji (musician), Geri Allen (musician), Cassie Kinoshi (musician).
