Enter a world of seductive decadence and biting satire as 1920s Berlin cabaret takes over Southbank Centre courtesy of musicians from the celebrated Berliner Philharmoniker. The Daily Telegraph said their last performance at Southbank Centre was 'striking for its muscular energy and unerring dramatic pacing.'



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.
