Awarded the Moliére Award for her performance as Sally Bowles in Cabaret in Paris, Ute Lemper decided to write a postcard to legendary Hollywood icon Marlene Dietrich, who was also living in the French capital, to apologize for all the media attention that had hailed Ute as a new star and compared the youngster to the legendary icon.

It was 1988 and Ute was just at the beginning of her career while Marlene, then aged 89, looked back on a long, fulfilled life of movies, music, incredible collaborations, love stories and global stardom. Somehow Marlene managed to track her down and called her out of the blue.

For 35 years, Ute has been compared to Marlene and Ute Lemper: Rendezvous With Marlene is her personal homage to the legend. The show is a dialogue between Ute and Marlene, exploring Marlene's career and personal life from the begin¬ning, in a timeline that eventually meets Ute's timeline with a continuation of their parallel stories. Ute sings Marlene's most beautiful songs and tells some captivating secrets of her life. Six days before Ute's opening night playing the part of Lola in the 1992 'Blue Angel' production in Berlin - the role that had made Marlene a star in 1928 - Marlene Dietrich passed away in Paris. After her glamorous funeral in La Madeleine, Marlene finally came back to Berlin to be put= to rest. Ute tells us Marlene's story, along with singing her fabulous songs from all the chapters of her life, from the Berlin cabaret years to her fabulous Burt Bacharach collaborations.

"Ute Lemper: Rendezvous With Marlene means a lot to me," says Ms. Lemper. "It is my personal homage to that great lady. There are many portraits of Marlene out there, but this one is coming from my heart. Audiences are in for an incredible story; history, fate, courage, style, politics, glamour and sex, talent and a huge career."
