Last seen in London in July 2016 for a brief run at Cadogan Hall before performances at the Edinburgh International Festival, Weimar Cabaret is a celebration of Humphries' lifelong passion and fascination with the music of the Weimar Republic, the German state that existed in the inter-war period between Germany's defeat in World War I in 1918 and Hitler's rise to power in 1933. This period of political, economic and social change gave rise to a cultural explosion of ideas across music, art, drama and literature with many Jewish artists central to this new artistic movement. Since discovering a collection of sheet music of composers banned by the Third Reich, including Erich Korngold, Kurt Weill and Ernst Krenek in a Melbourne book shop as a teenager in the 1940's, Humphries has been fascinated with the period's cultural experimentalism, defiance and unique mix of classical music and jazz. On stage Barry Humphries narrates in his own inimitable style his very personal journey and obsession with the music of this artistically fertile and experimental period of history. He is joined by the internationally acclaimed performer Meow Meow who brings to life some of the iconic musical numbers of the period by some of its leading composers including Kurt Weill, Ernst Krenek, Erwin Schulhoff, Ernst Toch and Mischa Spoliansky

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.
Flo & Joan are a British-born, Toronto-based musical comedy duo, and sisters Nicola and Rosie Dempsey.

Ida Barr is the creation of Olivier-award winner Christopher Green also known for BBC Radio 4 favourite Tina C.

She's appeared in her own series, Artificial Hip Hop, on BBC Radio 4 with special guest, the beatboxer known as Shlomo.
Ida is keeping it real. Politicians have proved over and over that they can't be trusted. "Power to the people!" shouts Ida from her sheltered accommodation in Dalston. Nothing will be the same again after a night of social agitation and tiny acts of rebellion using protest R&B and dissident songs from the 19th century all rapped up in a communal hip-hop style with mass singalongs and lots of the most revolutionary tool of all - laughter!
Lending her trademark husky alto to classic tunes from the American songbook, Kathleen will be interweaving songs including Let's Fall in Love and I'd Rather be Sailing alongside stories from her remarkable life and career.

Hope is a woman with a past. Before getting hitched to Irving and living in a camper van in Dungeness, she wandered vagabond-like around Europe plying her musical wares. Join Hope as she staggers down Memory Strasse to Berlin and that little back street bar she played piano and sang in during one long cold winter shortly after the war... Expect more evocative musical vignettes as Hope opens her battered suitcase of dreams to reveal unheard refrains and torrid tales from this uncharted chapter of her musical memoirs.
