Melbourne Cabaret Festival Presents KABARET DIETRICH
Melbourne Cabaret Festival presents Nikki Nouveau in Kabaret Dietrich - a beautifully rendered biography through song, dance and music.
The show is set in Weimar Republic Berlin and unmasks the trials of an ageing film star, from her early beginnings as a musician, an under-recognised performance career in cabaret and theatre, through to her emergence as a shining legend of the silver screen. Dietrich was at heart a gentleman, prepared to take on a man's world in a man's uniform with a man's daring.
Featuring a repertoire of cabaret classics, including 'Falling In Love Again', 'Lili Marlene' and 'La Vie En Rose', delivered in German, French and English with accompaniment by piano and musical saw, played by Nouveau who has trained in the art of musical saw playing in NYC.
Created and performed by Nikki Nouveau, a songstress, writer and producer whose glamorous productions have toured internationally to New York, Edinburgh, Adelaide, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
Kabaret Dietrich is a uniquely inspiring interpretation of one of the greatest style icons of our time. Bookings highly recommended.
