Welcome to the cabaret of degenerate music!
Where you can be just who you want to be!
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.
A ground-breaking collaboration between the Gate and ENO: a cabaret of riotous, witty, and shockingly prophetic songs, banned by the Nazis in the 1930s.
Seiriol Davies provides lyrics from the literal translations by David Tushingham.

“Wildly entertaining cabaret of songs banned by the Nazis that’s spiked with menace.”
