Synopsis


Welcome to the cabaret of degenerate music!


Where you can be just who you want to be!


A ground-breaking collaboration between the Gate Theatre and ENO presents 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.
