Alex Ross described Berlin in this period as 'the first all-night city, the city without shame,' a fleeting moment when classical music, composed by the likes of Kurt Weill, mixed easily with the worlds of art, fashion, jazz and music theatre.
Presiding over this evening's intoxicating entertainment are singer Dagmar Manzel and narrator Robert Gallinowski. They weave cabaret songs by composers such as Weill, Erman, Heymann, Schoenberg and Hindemith around ironic observations, political interjections and menacing bohemian wit.
