ENO and Gate Theatre present a cabaret of riotous, witty, and shockingly prophetic songs, all of which were banned by the Nazis in the 1930s.

Running from: Thu 03 May - Sat 02 Jun.

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. Censored, exiled, and incarcerated for being ‘degenerates’, their songs have been all but lost since. Until now.
