AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Barry Humphries curates, presents and performs the degenerate music of Berlin's Weimar Republic (1920s-1930s) 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 transgressive cabaret sensation Meow Meow in the racier numbers.

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, Brandt, Grosz and more.'

Production Details

  • Performed at Sydney's City Recital Hall, 23-27 April 2013 and the Sydney Opera House on 3 May, 2013.
